Preserving Videogame Culture

Posted on October 12th, 2010 by David Elliot

On November 12-14, the UCLA Film and Television Archive is holding a symposium entitled “Reimagining the Archive: Remapping and Remixing Traditional Modes in the Digital Era.”

We’re especially interested in the panel “Saving the Game: New Approaches to Preserving Videogame Culture.” This panel includes scholars from Stanford, UT Austin, the University of Arizona, and Arizona State University, and will explore archiving of pre-release documentation and versions, collecting user-created game artifacts (such as machinima) that reflect the culture surrounding games, and even rethinking entire concepts and methods of videogame and culture archives.

This panel takes place in the James Bridges Theater at 3:30 on Saturday, November 13.  See the full schedule of events here.
