Materials: Books, Games, Media and other Platforms
Ian Bogost

3 p.m. Thursday Feb. 17

Black Box Theater, lower basement, B2

Free and open to the public. Reception follows.
University Libraries ScriptaLab
with the ATLAS Speaker Series

Are books and games opposing forces? Forces of good or evil? How do they affect the formation of identity and culture? What meets high standards of culture? What best serves humanity?

Ian Bogost’s work provides a fresh vocabulary for contemporary media literacy. The game designer, writer, critic and associate professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology will look at games as significant cultural artifacts and examine broad philosophical questions about platforms.

Dr. Ian Bogost is an award-winning videogame designer and media philosopher and director of the Georgia Institute of Technology digital media graduate program.

This event is part of the ATLAS Speaker Series made possible by a generous donation by Idit Harel Caperton and Anat Harel. Additional support provided by the UCB University Libraries, Friends of the Libraries, English Department, Center for Humanities and the Arts, and the Book Arts League.
