Procedural Transgression: The Emancipatory Potential or Failure of Ludic Media

Fri, November 10, 1:45 to 3:30pm, Marriott Downtown Chicago, Floor: 10th, O'Hare

Session Submission Type: Panel

Brief Description

The panel investigates the transgressive and emancipatory potential of digital and ludic media in contemporary Russian and East European culture, as well as in digital representations of Russia and Eastern Europe. The panelists examine recent computer games, and other ludic media, questioning if such games allow for greater participatory agency and transgressive meaning-making, or if they reinforce dominant parochial regimes by substituting interactivity for agency.
