Guest LecturerDr. Roger Travis, Associate Professor of Classics, Departments of Literatures, Cultures, & Languages and Digital Media and Design, University of Connecticut

“Building a Really Epic Deck in Marvel’s Midnight Suns”

Dr. Travis discusses the roots of deckbuilding — of both the analog and the digital varieties — in oral recompositional epics like the Homeric Iliad and Odyssey. When you optimize your deck of hero moves in 2K’s Marvel’s Midnight Suns, Travis will try to persuade you, you’re doing something a lot more epic than you know!
