Hacker scholar investigating the phenomenon of play and the historical parallels in the emergence of commercial drama and video games.

  • The Play Element of Culture


    I’d like to propose a session discussing games as a form for cultural analysis. More specifically, I’d like to see a session discussingĀ current academic theories in relation to games (philosophy of the game?). For example, what effect might the turn to the “non-human” have upon game studies? Which philosophers or theorists have been helpful for your understanding of games? What are the current trends for understanding games and where do you think the future of games studies is headed?
