Welcome to PLAYHOUSE


‘Playhouse’ is a place for me to file things.

My name is Diane Carr. I work at UCL IOE.

See here for more details including teaching roles and research projects. 

To access papers on games and player studies (especially games and textual methods, representation, ability and disability) see the publications page.

For updates go to ‘Games, Ability and Disability’.



To find more research on digital games, try the journal Game Studies, or visit the searchable digital library at the Digital Games Research Association

There is a sample issue of the journal Games and Culture online here 

Other game studies journals available online include Loading, and Eludamos and First Person Scholar.
