Zabawa jest wielkością daną kulturze, egzystującą przed samą kulturą, towarzyszącą jej i przenikającą ją od samego początku.

Culture-generative function of games

 The game as a medium,  text and ritual

Poznań November 19 - 20, 2005

We would like to invite you to the first International Conference “Culture-generative function of games”, which will be held on November 19-20, 2005 in the Department of Glottodidactics and Translation Studies of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań.

            As a new issue in scholarly studies, games demand establishing consistent terminology, setting the range of research needed for their exhaustive analysis, and finding answers to several crucial questions, such as:
  • What influence have games exerted on people's life until now?
  • Have games established a position as an educational tool?
  • What applications did games have in the past and how will they be used in the future?
  • Is it necessary and possible to create new research methodology for game studies?
  • Can ludology be developed only on the basis of the theories created by the humanities and social sciences?
