GAME 4000 - Game Studies Seminar


3 cr. 3 hr. Offered once per Semester.

In this seminar, students will read, discuss and write about the major questions, developments and movements in the study of games. Readings will be interdisciplinary and heterodox and drawn from classic works on games and play as well as the contemporary digital wave. In this course students will explore the histories of video games as well as the key ways in which video games, games in general and play have been theorized in the humanities and social sciences. Over the course of the semester the class will come to define play and how it relates to games, work, war, sociability, learning and other key concepts. Students will write a series of short commentaries as well as a final paper.

Prerequisite(s): GAME 2000 , ENGL 1200  and Junior/Senior status.
