Digital Society lectury by Dr. Yannick Rochat
Assistant professor in game studies at the University of Lausanne

While video games have been in existence for over six decades, the discipline of game studies emerged gradually, much like the development of film studies. Today, this research field delves into the multifaceted nature of video games, which often serve as mirrors reflecting various aspects of our society. This talk will explore different dimensions of these digital artifacts, including the video game industry, the language of game design, and the reception of video games by a global and diverse audience.
