Olli Sotamaa's PhD Defence

I don’t think this is yet in any official web page, but here is the key information:

MA Olli Sotamaa will publicly defend his PhD thesis titled “The Player’s Game: Towards Understanding Player Production Among Computer Game Cultures” in April 25th 2009 in University of Tampere, hall A1. The opponent will be Professor Aphra Kerr (National University of Ireland) and the custodian is Professor Mikko Lehtonen.

  1. Greetings from Japan, and please forward my congratulations to Olli! I wish I could come and hear the public defence, but oh well. I’m sort of busy on this side of the globe.

    Hope everything’s going well in Finland, despite the depression and fundamental changes in the university infrastructure…
