GAMIFY YOUR RESEARCH, TEAMWORK, LIFEWORK
DISCUSS COLLABORATE EXPLORE GAMIFICATION FOR INNOVATION

FREE WORKSHOP

When: 9th December 2011, 5:30pm

Where: Bath Ventures Innovation Centre

Dr. Patrick Crogan tells us how:

  • The Cold War gave us First-person-shooters and Strategy for Massive Multiplayer Wargames
  • Play, Flight-simulators & Culture collide
  • WarGames create Realworld Communities
  • Modern Game culture can outplay War to anticipate Peace

An expert in games and contemporary culture, Dr. Patrick Crogan will show us how computer games originated in developing cybernetic weapons in the 1940′s and how this continues to influence our online culture today. Combining military logic, social critique and his newly published book, Gameplay Mode: War, Simulation and Technoculture, this lecture will finish our series with a bang.

Patrick is on the Executive Board of the Digital Games Research Association and teaches Film and Philosophy, World Cinema, Games, Simulation and Media at the University of West England.
