More Than Fun: Play and Paper Panel on Game Studies at Memorial
Friday, Nov. 24, 12-1:30 p.m.
From playing Candy Crush while waiting in line to e-sports tournaments that attract as many viewers as traditional sports, video games have rapidly become one of the largest entertainment industries. In line with this growth, academic research on video games is also gaining momentum. This diverse field critically examines many different features of video games, from their gameplay to their stories, aesthetic design to music.
In this play and paper panel, Dr. Sarah Thorne and graduate students from the Department of English will discuss their research and analyze games that will be played live during the session, including Zachtronics’ Eliza (2019), Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (2017), and NotGames’ Not for Broadcast(2022). Presentations will be followed by a discussion session.
Join us on November 24th from 12:00 – 1:30 in Arts 3018!
