If you didn’t catch my colloquium presentation with Shawn Lamebull on Wednesday, I’ve made a couple of recordings of it in podcast-friendly formats:
Here’s the video version (122mb .mp4).
Here’s the audio version (46mb .mp3).
It was a very different talk than your American Studies one, kind of like a part 1 (the one you recently gave) and a part 2 (where you showed people a close reading of a specific game). I think that the most interesting parts were your discussions of representations and how they are connected to creators, consumers, and academics. I’m still not sure if I completely grasp procedural rhetoric, but I definitely think you both did a nice job convincing skeptics that games are complex and can be “read.”
