Exploring childhood, adolescence, nationhood and citizenship, Dr Carly Adams, Associate Professor of Kinesology and Physical Education at the University of Lethbridge considers how social and moral reform initiatives have impacted leisure spaces in early 20th-century Canada.

Looking at illustrations from oral history research on women who attended municipal playgrounds as children in a small Canadian city from 1920-1950, Dr Adams sheds light on the ways in which urban parks and supervised playgrounds shaped the nation’s youth.
