The Importance of Play (Marie Jarrell)

The Games & Society Lab speaker series continues!

The series invites practitioners and researchers in and around game design to present their work, thoughts, and process. In this episode, Dr. Marie Jarrell talks about embodied identification, the connection you get from controlling a game character. Can playing games change the way we see ourselves? Can it change how we see the people around us?

A total of three episodes are planned for the spring, released over the next two months.
