Streaming SMC: Playing Gris with Prof. Iris Gildea

November 26 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

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.

Tune in to live online at twitch.tv/ProfParker! No registration is required, but to use text chat for interactive comments and questions, you can create a free Twitch account.
