After our success last year, we are pleased announce the 2nd Play, Games, and Videogames Seminar to be organised with Maria B. Garda (PhD, University of Łódź). The seminar is open for all University of Turku students and researchers who wish discuss and get feedback on their Bachelor’s, Master’s, or postgraduate thesis related to play, games, or videogames. To apply, submit a 200-word abstract of your work and prepare a 15–20 minute presentation to be held at the seminar. Applicants may additionally attach a longer manuscript to be shared with participants.
Applications should be sent to [vmmkar@utu.fi] before 18.4.2016. To be able to provide decent feedback, this time the number or participants in limited to seven (one less than last year). Those who participated last year are allowed to apply, but in case of selection new applicants have priority. By writing an additional 5-page discussion paper, students can earn 1 ECTS. If you are interested in participating the seminar without presenting research, please send a request to the above address by the deadline.

 

The seminar is chaired by postdoctoral researcher Veli-Matti Karhulahti (University of Turku).
