36-1100 Game Culture


This course explores the increasing popularity of games within today’s culture, which necessitates analysis of how games are impacted by social and ideological forces and influence them in turn. Questions like Why do we play and How do we play differently are explored, with many others, as students are guided through topics such as role-playing and identity, ethics, group behavior, competition, gender, race, and aesthetics in modern (and historical) games.
