Taking Play Seriously Seminar

Tuesday, November 14, 2017,

  • Location: Robert Penn Warren Center • 2301 Vanderbilt Place • Nashville, TN 37235

Hosted by the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities. 

This group will focus on two questions: what are games and play, and what makes some forms of games and play good, ethically or politically? The group will host two types of events. First, reading groups will discuss four books that draw on media studies, history, psychology, and neuroscience. Second, public talks will focus on specialized themes, twice as digital colloquia (lectures and discussions with experts in the field) and once as a panel on exclusion in gaming communities.
