Streaming SMC: Playing Gris with Prof. Iris Gildea
November 26, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm EST
Streaming SMC is a series of video game livestreaming events hosted by Book & Media Studies Prof. Felan Parker, featuring St. Mike’s faculty discussing games related to their areas of expertise.
On November 26 from 2:30 to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Prof. Parker will host fellow Book & Media Studies professor Dr. Iris Gildea to play and discuss the game Gris (2018), a critically acclaimed game that metaphorically depicts grief and depression as a perilous journey through a visually striking imaginary world. Building on Dr. Gildea’s research, teaching, and creative practice, this event will critically consider how trauma is rendered in games and other popular media.
