This spring, the Libraries continue to explore Games Without Frontiers, the centerpiece of our 2015-2016 Beyond the Page public programming series. The thoughtful and engaging discussions, panels, lectures, and performances presented will examine games, gaming, play, and all their social and cultural implications.
Highlights this season include:
- February 19—Media critic Anita Sarkeesian comes to Temple to discuss sexism in gaming as well as games and communities that avoid stereotypes. Registration for this program is required. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
- February 25—Author Alexander Wolff will discuss his new book, The Audacity of Hoop (Temple University Press, 2015), which explores Barack Obama, person and president, through basketball.
- March 15—Temple alumnae and owner of Philadelphia’s Amalgam Comics and Coffeehouse Ariell Johnson will speak about geek culture and fan fiction.
- March 29 and 30—Interdisciplinary game designer and researcher, Lindsay Grace, will present his work at Temple as our spring artist/maker-in-residence.
