Keynotes by Wendy Chun and Matthew Kirschenbaum!
Registration is still open for Extending Play 3: Temporalities of Play, which will be held at the School of Communication & Information, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, on Sept. 30 & Oct. 1, 2016.
Extending Play, the interdisciplinary play and game studies conference, is back, and this iteration will play with the concept of time. Extending Play 3 will offer paper presentations, performances, games and keynotes that work to excavate the past, interpret the present, and forecast the future of play and games.
We aim to continue the mission of the previous two Extending Play conferences, to entertain all approaches to the traditions, roles, and contexts of play, extending it into far-flung and unexpected arenas. Extending Play 3 takes an inclusive and pluralistic approach to temporality and play, offering a forum for presenting creative applications of the concepts as they relate to all things playable – from analog and digital games and moving images, to recorded sound and performance.
