Description

Theme

The Medium is the Game

Since 2003 and the first DiGRA convention in 2003, we have seen a huge change in the ways that Games Studies understands itself and has conveyed itself as a discipline to (and sometimes within) other critical media. This conference takes as its theme the media of the game - playfully repositioning the 2018 DiGRA theme of ‘The Game is the Message’.

We welcome submissions that move beyond digital gaming, for example submissions relating to boardgames LARP, pervasive games or other forms of analog gaming.

Submissions should consider, but not be restricted to, the following topics in this light:

  • Revisiting Games as Inter/Multidisciplinary subject
  • Gaming as Media
  • Representation in Games
  • Playfulness and the Medium of Games (Why/Not so Serious…?)
  • Building games
  • Pedagogical practice and gaming
  • Game design/development/theory - the un/holy? trinity
  • Changes in gaming culture
  • After the Storm (post gamergate theory)
  • Games production as critical medium
  • eSports theory
