The School of Literature Communication and Culture at Georgia Tech is hosting what is sure to be a great colloquium next week, “How to Think About Narrative and Interactivity.” It will be held 4:30-6pm on Tuesday October 20th in the Skiles building on campus (map), room 002 on the ground floor.

The colloquium will feature the following speakers and topics, as well as moderation/questions from myself and Celia Pearce.

“A Narrative Theory of Games”

Espen Aarseth

“Phantasmal Narrative”

Fox Harrell

“Dramatic Agency through Suspense-Making”

Janet Murray

The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served beforehand.

When I whipped up this image for my recent DiGRA keynote, I didn’t realize how soon it would become a reality… although, I’m confident that what we’ll have here will be more like a civil game of bridge than a prize match.
