Dr Yinka Olusoga is a lecturer in education and Course Director of the BA in Education, Culture and Childhood at the University of Sheffield. Her research and teaching focus on discourses and histories of childhood, play and education. She engages in critical work with historical and archival material, examining intersecting discursive constructions of social class, gender and race. She also researches environments for children’s play, creative engagement and digital literacies, and the inter-generational co-construction of play and storytelling. Yinka is a co-investigator for The Play Observatory, an ESRC-funded project examining children’s play experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic, data from which will establish an archive for future researchers.
