leave a comment »

Marxism and New Media continues at the John Hope Franklin Center at Duke all day Saturday. I’ll be moderating the Games and Virtual Worlds panel at 1:30:

* Stephanie Boluk (Vassar College), “State of Play: Procedural Love and Ludic Labor”
* Alenda Chang (University of California, Berkeley), “Land’s Labors Lost: Farm Games and the Counter-Pastoral”
* Kenneth Rogers (University of California, Riverside), “Technologies of Management: Digital Labor, Human Capital, and the Attention Economy”
* Braxton Soderman (Miami University), “Benjamin and Brecht Play Chess: Critiquing the Industry of Innovation in Contemporary Game Production”

Other panel themes include collective production (9 AM), political economy (10:40 AM), cognitive capitalism (3:30 PM), and of course the keynotes (5:30 PM).
