Jun 20. "This is not a game:" Jane McGonigal visits Brown@Stanford

Game developer Jane McGonigal joined Brown Institute Stanford Director Maneesh Agrawala on May 23 for a conversation about critical topics in game theory and culture entitled “This is Not a Game.” The two discussed how new forms of media - online gaming and augmented realities – influence our personal wellness, political views and collective behaviors. The discussion capped a day-long symposium during which McGonigal joined UC Berkley Professor Greg Niemeyer (visiting this year at Brown) and Antero Garcia for a discussion of talks in conjunction with the release of a new book: Alternate Reality Games and the Cusp of Digital Gamplay.

Established in 2012, the Institute is a collaboration between Columbia and Stanford Universities. Our mission is simple: Sponsor thinking, building and speculating on how stories are discovered and told in a networked, digitized world.
