Event description
A conversation with McKenzie Wark on the 15th anniversary of Gamer Theory.

About this event

Originally published in 2006, McKenzie Wark's Gamer Theory remains one of the deepest explorations of way that video games fit into the culture of the 21st century. As one of the pre-eminent critical theorists of her generation Wark examined how video games reflected back to their players the economic, cultural, and ultimately algorithmic, forces that led the overdeveloped world to cast itself in the image of a 'gamespace'. Join us for a discussion with Prof. Wark that looks back on Gamer Theory with 15 years of hindsight, places the book within her larger body of work, and connects it to both the contemporary video game industry and the 'death of capitalism'.

The NYU Game Center Lecture Series will be happening in-person and streaming online for the Fall 2021 Lectures! Talks will take place live at the NYU Game Center with a very limited in-person audience of current NYU students and faculty only. The Lectures will be simultaneously live-streamed at twitch.tv/nyugamecenter. All lectures are free both in-person and online.

The NYU Game Center would like to thank our event sponsors: Fresh Planet, Take-Two Interactive, Dots, and Empire State Development. Their generous support makes our events possible.
