POSTPONED: Japanese Culture Through Video Games
Join the JASP as Dr. Rachael Hutchinson delves into the internationally known industry of Japanese video games, and how Japan's influence on the gaming market affects international views of the country and culture. She will also discuss how Japanese video game creators have co-opted certain techniques used by more traditional mediums such as literature and film and made it into something more palatable to the newest generation of consumers in society.
** This event has been postponed due to Covid-19 Concerns. We will send updated information as it becomes available.
