Description: In our first roundtable, we combine our five first speakers together in a panel to get to know more about them and their take on transformative play. After hearing:
-- Whitney "Strix" Beltrán talk about archetype work in character creation for player catharsis;
-- Johanna Koljonen talk about Nordic larp as a tool for social change;
-- Diana J. Leonard talk about role-playing marginalized characters;
-- Jaakko Stenros talk about the evolution of play and dark play; and
-- Allen Turner talk about the importance of the Trickster archetype...
...we are now bringing them together to explore transformative play in the past, present, and future.
This series is hosted by the Games & Society Lab at the Department of Game Design, Uppsala University Campus Gotland. The series explores the use of analog role-playing games as vehicles for lasting personal and social change.
