Prof. Shaw to analyze video games at conference

ShawAAdrienne Shaw, assistant professor of media studies and production, will discuss her research on video games at “Not Yet Real: Videogames, Theory, Criticism” at the Goethe-Institut in New York Jan. 11 to Feb. 2, 2014.

Event organizers say the event “highlights new and emerging approaches that pursue a more nuanced analysis of what is, by nearly any account, one of the dominant art forms of the twenty-first century.”

Shaw’s work will be part of an interactive installation that interprets four individual video games. She also will be part of a roundtable discussion, entitled “Games, Representation and Experience” on Jan. 30 that will examine games and game criticism.
