Games in Film nights discuss issues surrounding games and gaming more broadly as they are represented in film. For this event we will watch and then have a panel discussion on the film Get Lamp. The film is a documentary that explores the history of text-adventure games, or interactive fiction, beginning with the first game Adventure in the late 1970s continuing on to the early 1990s when text-adventure games went out of fashion due to the rise of graphic based games.   Our panelists for this event are:

Alison Harvey, PhD Post-Doc, Faculty of Information & Semaphore Lab, UofT
Andy Keenan, PhD (Student) Faculty of Information & Semaphore Lab, UofT
Elisa Tersigni, PhD (Candidate) English Dept. & Lexicon for Early Modern English, UofT
All students, faculty and other interested parties are welcome. There are 48 seats available. ‚ÄčREGISTER HERE
