Qualitative Social Science Workshop

Serious Games: Beyond Practice Theory
The idea of “serious games” is an attempt to get “beyond practice theory” in a variety of ways – to build on its basic insights, but at the same time to make it more cultural, more political, more historical, and more critical. This particular talk is taken from the in-progress introduction to a collection of theoretical and ethnographic essays that expand on various aspects of the concept of serious games.
