Datum: 05.12.2007

Ort: MZH 5210

Vortragende(r): Espen J. Aarseth, Ph.D. (Center of Computer Games Research, IT University of Copenhagen)

How do we understand meaning and referentiality in games?
Are game worlds and game objects ficticious, e.g. like literary worlds and objects?
Is semiotics sufficient to understand the production of game meaning?
In this talk, two models will be presented for understanding the dual layers of game meaning and the tripartite nature of game objects.

Everybody welcome, in particular all those interested in games.
