Now Online: Video Games as Visual Culture


My course FILM 80V Video Games as Visual Culture is now being offered as a UCSC Summer Online course beginning this summer. For 2020, I’m piloting an intensive 5-week version of the course. In the future, it will be offered in summers, as well as at least once at its normal 10-week length, during the normal academic year. I developed this course in 2009 to introduce the study of video games through their cultural meanings, visual, theoretical and social contexts.
