Mini-Update: Future Imaginary Lecture Series
October 28, 2016
She:kon! The weather has taken a dive into chilling temperatures here in Montreal as November approaches.
The Future Imaginary Lecture Series is a set of public talks sharing views on the future of Indigenous people and worldwide communities from Indigenous artists, activists, scholars and technologists.
The series began recently on October 14th with Kim Tallbear’s lecture: Disrupting Settlement, Sex, and Nature an Indigenous Logic of Rationality.
One of Concordia University’s newspapers, The Link, covered the event and the article can be seen HERE.
Allen Turner is coming up next in the series on November 11, 2016 with his lecture Designing Alternative Indigenous Timelines Using Role-Playing Games.
Allen teaches game design at the Center for Digital Media at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois. He is currently focusing on game-like learning, designing for the tabletop, and exploring interactive fiction. He will be bringing his recently published Ehdrigohr: The Roleplaying Game for those interested in trying it out.
