Well Played: Bioshock Infinite

BioShockInfinite_Boxart_12012012Join us Wednesday, October 21 at 12:15 in the ModLab (Fine Arts 215) for a Well Played session of Bioshock Infinite. Dr. Aaron Hostetter, Assistant Professor of English, will lead a discussion about how systemic racism is represented in the game. The player of Bioshock Infinite is confronted with a number of scenes during which they must navigate the fictional world of Columbia and its deep-seated racism. We’ll discuss two scenes, “Raffle Park” and “Fraternal Order of the Raven,” and how they implicate the player in the racial dynamics of Columbia.

Those attending will have an opportunity to both play and discuss Bioshock Infinite. This event is open to the public.
