Among the most fascinating aspects of games are the stories players tell with them. This Praxis Studio speaker series attends to how we study, document, and narrate play. Each event is an informal conversation with our visiting speaker and a part of the "Player Stories" seminar (Fall 2022) in English and Cultural, Social, and Political Thought.
Every event is public + online, and we provide Zoom URLs for each. Please note that the schedule is subject to change. Thanks for your time. We hope to see you soon.
