9:00-18:00 9th May 2018 – Abertay University, Dundee, UK.
The relationship between narrative and games has been contentious across popular, academic and developer discussions. If we shift the critical question to the closely related term ‘storytelling’, what new perspectives arise? This symposium brings together scholars specialising in literature, museology, comics, videogames, cinema, history, artificial intelligence, fine arts and other fields to examine contemporary storytelling through the lens of gaming.
Keynote: Professor Espen Aarseth (ITU Copenhagen).
