Henry Jenkins in Helsinki

Professor Henry Jenkins, the Director of the Comparative Media Studies Program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is visiting Helsinki and has agreed to give a talk on “Serious Play” as part of the Aula klubi series.

Right now, video and computer games are understood by most people purely as a mode of recreation and entertainment. Yet, around the edges, we are starting to see signs that they can be much more than this. Professor Jenkins will offer some snapshots of the “serious game” movement, pointing to key exemplars and what they suggest about the future of gaming.

Professor Jenkins will speak on Wednesday 19 January at 6:00 PM at Korjaamo, Töölönkatu 51 b in Helsinki. The event will be held in English and is free and open to the public, so once again, please spread the word!
