Abstract [en]

Instead of focusin on the impications of childrenn´s play for individual development, this study expores children´s play participation and their appropriation of cultural resourses, as collective cultural productions. In short, we are interested in the communicative competencies involved in the collective processes of social exclusion in girls´play, and how these processes are part of children´s emerging peer culture and their place in the adult world. Data are drawn from ethographic research in children´s peer groups in a pre-school setting in Sweden. The approach taken combines ethnography with studies of talk-in -interaction. As demonstrated the girls in foci display complex communicative competencies (rejections of request for access, oppositions, ignorance, justifications, directives). In addition, the girls creatively draw on cultural resources provided by the organisation of the play activity (pretend characters, play-script, etc.) to build social hierarchies, strengthen alignments of power, clamin authoritative stances, casting som peer group members into more subordinate positions and excluding others. In so doing, the girls creativiely appropriate educational agendas and institutional rules of conduct, creating a locally shared peer culture, through appropriation and resistance, in the midst of play episodes.
