Video games, unlike literature, film, music, traditional art, are often overlooked when it comes to identifying media that can convey moving stories or ideas. This class will serve to rectify that. Students will engage with and discuss a variety of video games that exemplify strong narratives that can only be conveyed through an interactive medium. Open to those who are passionate about games or complete beginners.
This is a student-led colloquium led by Elly Spencer under the supervision of Professor Daniel Frank.
