Life of the Mind

Game on: Emerging Interactive Technology for Research and Teaching

Tuesday, November 1, 2016 | 4 - 5 p.m.
Jones Room, Woodruff Library

Tanine Allison and Mellon Faculty Fellow Daniel Reynolds, assistant professors in the Department of Film and Media Studies, discuss the uses of video games for teaching and research in the humanities.

  • Allison's research examines how first-person shooter games open up new representations of war that are lacking in cinema. She uses these games in class to explore violent media, gaming cultures, and the military-industrial-entertainment complex.
  • Reynolds researches the relationships between media and the mind, focusing on what film and video games can tell us about perception and consciousness.

They will be introduced by Matthew H. Bernstein, Goodrich C. White Professor and chair of the Department of Film and Media Studies.

Sponsored by the Office of the President and the Office of the Provost, the Life of the Mind series celebrates Emory's outstanding faculty and the dynamic intellectual community of the university.

All are welcome.
