The one-day symposium The Present and Future of Game Studies at the University of Helsinki hosted by HeGRiC – Helsinki Game Research Collective will take place on 20.9.2021.
The aim of the symposium is to discuss the current state and possible futures of game studies at the University of Helsinki. The day will include talks by invited speakers and round table discussions to explore the questions:
Who is doing game research at the University of Helsinki? What different areas of game scholarship currently takes place at the University of Helsinki? How can the university departments and faculties support game scholars and multidisciplinary approaches to games? What exists, and what is lacking, in terms of seminars and teaching to support students who are interested in/doing game studies? What should happen in game studies at the University of Helsinki in the future?
Detailed program to be announced. More information will be updated on our social media https://twitter.com/gameshegric as well.
HeGRiC – Helsinki Game Research Collective is a multidisciplinary network of game scholars at the University of Helsinki. HeGRiC was formed late 2019 to create a local space at the university where game researchers and other interested parties can meet, discuss and work together. The aim of the collective is to facilitate peer-support, visibility and collaboration across disciplines and faculties for scholars who are interested in research and teaching about games at the University of Helsinki.
The event is kindly supported by the ReNew project (Reimagining Norden in an Evolving World) and HYY (Helsingin Yliopiston Ylioppilaskunta).
We’d be delighted if you decide to join us on September 20th!
