Historia Ludens — Conference on History and Gaming All Day on 19/05/2017

Organized by the History Division and the Digital Arts and Humanities Research Group

This conference follows up on the workshop “Playing with History” that was held in Huddersfield in November 2015. Gaming and History is gaining more and more traction, either as means to “gamify” history education or museum experiences, or as computer games as prism into history like the popular History Respawned podcast series (http://www.historyrespawned.com/).

The conference will discuss terms like “gaming”, “playing” and “history” in broad terms. There are academic papers in the morning and round-table sessions in the afternoon for networking and demos.

Tickets (£10) are available via the University of Huddersfield web shop. Please note: there are travel/conference bursaries for postgraduate students available on request; please contact Dr Alexander von Lünen (a.f.vonlunen@hud.ac.uk) for details.
