video games.

The format for the evening will focus on dialogue and conversation.
The audience is encouraged to join the discussion. Please bring your questions and
ideas around the general topic of games and the specific topic of how to best
incorporate games as a field of study within the university.

Dr. Ian Bogost is an Associate Professor at the Georgia Institute of

Bogost’s videogames about social and political issues cover topics as varied
as airport security, disaffected workers, the petroleum industry, suburban
errands, and tort reform. His games have been played by millions of people and
exhibited internationally.
