This next Thursday, February 17th,  the Game Center will be hosting a lecture by McKenzie Wark.  McKenzie Wark is a writer and scholar who has authored several important books about technology, new media, and digital culture. In 2006 he released Gamer Theory, an ambitious and unconventional look at how videogames relate to the philosophical, political, and aesthetic dimensions of contemporary life.

The format for the evening will be a short lecture followed by a general discussion moderated by Game Center Interim Director Frank Lantz. The audience is encouraged to join the discussion. Please bring your questions and ideas about tonight’s topic and overall subject of games in general.

The talk will begin at 7:00 PM at 721 Broadway, Room 006 and is open to students, faculty, and the general public. We welcome everyone, whether your research and teaching is related to games or you are simply curious about this rapidly evolving field. Please come, and feel free to bring any interested NYU colleagues.

Refreshments will be served.
