Values at Play in Digital Games

Mary Flanagan is an artist, author, educator, and designer.  Her art deals with the ways that the design and use of technology can reveal social insights. Through performance, sculpture, video game mods, software, interactive texts, and networked databases she investigates how human relationships manifest in, and are influenced by, the technological artifacts permeating the modern world. She is the Inaugural Director of the Tiltfactor Lab, an innovative game research laboratory focused on the development of games that address social issues to transform institutions. She is the author of Critical Play: Radical Game Design (MIT Press, 2009) and Values at Play in Digital Games (MIT Press, 2014).

Copies of Professor Flanagan's new book, Values at Play in Digital Games, will be available for sale before the talk, from 3:30 until 4:15 pm for the discounted price of $15.00 CAD (cash sales only).
