LUDUS: The Narrative of Games and the Art of Play, GLITS Interdiscipinary Research Conference, 22 June 2012 [30 April 2012]

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Grethe Mitchell (University of Lincoln)

The Latin word 'Ludus' (a play, a game, a pastime) embodies a semantic play of language that is suggestive of the importance of the concepts of play and games to cultural products. Ludus can also refer to a school for elementary instruction, 'Ludi' to public shows or spectacles. Latin poetry often explores and celebrates Ludus as the creative play of writing, as in Ludic verse.

Writing in 1899, Frederick Dolman argued in an article titled "Four-Footed Actors: About Some Well-Known Animals that Appear in the London and Provincial Stage" that the "growth of variety theatres and the decay of comic songs" had developed in "several kinds of diversion, not the least of which is furnished by the art of the animal-trainer" (The English Illustrated Magazine, Sep. 1899, 192, p. 521). Dolman was describing the large-scale entertainments starring animals that had taken over traditional spectator recreations for the last century in a manner not unlike the success of music-halls and professional sport.
