Event description

Description

Explore the overlap between literature and games with the British Library.

As the boundaries between art forms blur, how do games and literature interact? How are the fictional worlds of our favourite novels and plays represented in games and what do games bring to the written word in return?

Join experts in both literature and games as they discuss this evolving landscape and inspiring projects; including the Library's Off the Map competition, which challenged students to create Alice in Wonderland and Shakespearean themed games.
