Graduate Student Work-in-Progress: “A Comedy in Five Acts: A Gamified Pedagogical Approach to Shakespeare”
Date: Thursday, February 25, 2016
Time: 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Location: Clark Hall Room 206
Michelle Lyons-McFarland, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of English, will explore what it means to take plot, trope, and narrative and turn them into game rules, in effect highlighting them for players/students and audiences. What are the consequences of including social games in the classroom? How can you turn a classic work of literature into a game, either for personal amusement or pedagogical purposes?
Pre-lecture reception begins at 4:15 p.m. in Clark 206.
