Event description

Description

As part of their final project, students in ENGL208A are making their own creative works -- from short stories, to artworks, to interpretive dance! -- as commentary on fantasy texts that we've read in class. Come see how your students, friends, and family have re-interpreted stories like Malinda Lo's Ash, JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, and many more!

Students will provide a short explanation of their work, after which will follow some light refreshments and the opportunity to take a closer look at the artworks and chat with the students.

Organizer of Forms of Fantasy Showcase

 

The Games Institute conducts research into the past, present, and future of digital games. With a research network joining multiple universities and multiple industry partners, we explore the human side of games and game-related technologies and interactions, with the constant goal of understanding the compelling user engagement that games deliver in fields ranging from entertainment, education, health, and business.

The Interactive and Multi-Modal Experience Research Syndicate (IMMERSe) explores game research standards, develops tools for assessing the game experience and studies, examines game text and context, and enhances game use in the fields of learning and training. We investigate these goals within six overarching research themes: interactions and gameplay mechanics, narrative and dialog in games, multimodality in the game, serious games and game-based learning, games that change behaviour, and cultural and social interactions.
