Board Game Studies Colloquium XX – University of Copenhagen

The Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies at the University of Copenhagen is happy to announce that it will be hosting the 20th Board Game Studies Colloquium.

Dates: May 17-20, 2017
Venue: Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

The colloquium gathers a wide range of scholars, curators, inventors, collectors, and enthusiasts from around the world to present and discuss new research in the burgeoning field of game studies. The focus has traditionally been on historical board, card, and dice games, but later years have begun to feel the impact from the current explosion in non-digital gaming.

This year, too, we would like to welcome speakers and participants from both sides of the game board, so to speak, in an attempt to further our collective understanding of the origins and development of contemporary games.

The colloquium is subtitled "models, metaphors, meanings". Explore the theme to learn more.
