‘Playing Games’ – UCL Department of English Graduate Conference 2013

Taking place on 24 May 2013 in the Department of English at University College London, this conference will explore diverse expressions of game/play in literature, film, the visual arts, performance, architecture and design. It is concerned with games that serve as allegories, as narrative devices or as structuring metaphors; from playful conceits through to the esoterica of avant-garde experimentation.

It is an interdisciplinary conference geared towards graduate students – an opportunity to present work, share ideas and debate approaches in a stimulating but welcoming environment. We will be inviting proposals for 20 minute papers from students at MA and PhD level, both from literature departments and across other disciplines, and extracts from work in progress are welcome.
