Game or Be Gamed: Play, Participation and Power in the Digital Landscape
Thursday, December 6th 7PM
721 Broadway, Room 006
Douglas Rushkoff, code evangelist at Codecademy and author of Program or Be Programmed, Life Inc, and Media Virus, will explore the levels of playability in video games for what they reveal about our access to participation in society at large. Are we players, cheaters, modders, or programmers? What do games teach players about their agency both within the game and in the world beyond, and how do we – as game authors – encourage the quest for greater agency? Do we even want to?
Join us for December’s guest lecture. This event is free and open to the public.
