Touring During January and February

Looking at my calendar, I will be mostly in Finland during this Spring (this is at least what I imagine at the moment). There are few engagements in the coming weeks worth listing here:

  • in January 16th to 20th I will be participating in the IPerG workshop and planning pervasive gaming research (in Palma de Mallorca, nice!)
  • in January 25th I will be in Joensuu, examining the licentiate thesis of Leena Vartiainen that is related to live roleplaying, arts and crafts and virtual communities
  • the following day, January 26th, I will be giving a talk in Forum Dynamo conference, titled Games Cultures & Games Literacy (PDF brochure)
  • in the 1st of February, I will be talking in Youth, Media and Library — Back to the Future seminar in Tikkurila about Cultures of Games and Cultures of Play
  • following Monday, 5th of February, I will speak in Tietoturvaviikot event in Helsinki (Online Safety Week) about Net Cultures, Now and in the Future

And then there will be the bi-weekly PhD & MA seminar of game studies that I will be running during this spring; welcome. As there are also other lectures, classes and several research projects and other work going on, it appears that I will have no difficulty in filling my hours this spring, either. 🙂
