In this talk, Vit Sisler, a professor of New Media Studies at Charles University, will critically analyze the ways in which the Middle East has been represented in video games.
First, Sisler will discuss how various genres of American and European video games have constructed the Middle Eastern environments and characters. Finally, the talk contrasts these broader trends in western digital representation with selected video games produced in the Middle East, whose authors strive to present more realistic and authentic representations to their audiences.
Free and open to the public.
