A one-day symposium on interdisciplinary research in games and gaming
Multiplatform 2017 is the inaugural symposium of the Games Research Network at Manchester Metropolitan University. Multiplatform in terms of both media and method, this symposium sets out to explore the transmedial nature of games and games research for both the analogue and digital formats.
By bringing together academics and researchers, industry professionals, games designers and players we aim to support and promote research into games and gaming from a range of angles and across a range of media.
In keeping with our multidisciplinary and multiplatform approach to game studies, the symposium will open with a plenary address from Dr Paul Booth (DePaul University, Chicago), author of Digital Fandom: New Media Studies (2010), Playing Fans: Negotiating Fandom and Media in the Digital Age (2015) and Game Play: Paratextuality in Contemporary Board Games (2015).
The registration fee includes tea and coffee plus lunch.
Please note, we have a limited number of subsidised places for students.
