public lecture series 2012
The Global Politics of Games Production
6pm Wednesday 28th November
Lecture Room G6, School of Art Design and Printing
Dublin Institute of Technology, 41 Mountjoy Square, Dublin 1
The last two months saw the launch of Halo 4, Fifa 13, Just Dance 4 and Assassins Creed III. The names are important. They are sequels and a mix of original and licensed intellectual properties. Where are they made and who makes them? Can we understand games as cultural and social products as well as economic ones? Does politics have anything to do with it? This talk will explore some of the social and cultural aspects of games production as well as the political and economic factors shaping their development. It will also point to the role that companies located in Ireland play in the global production networks of the games industry.
All are welcome to this free event, but places are limited.
