2022 | About

Gamebooks is the 18th spring seminar organised by Tampere University Game Research Lab. The seminar series has been running annually since 2005. The theme changes each year, as do the expert commentators. The Game Research Lab Spring Seminar is the longest running international game studies seminar.

The seminar emphasises dialogue and constructive feedback, and has always welcomed also work-in-progress submissions, late-breaking results, working papers, as well as submissions from graduate and PhD students. The purpose of the seminar is to have peer-to-peer discussions and thereby provide support in refining and improving research work in this area.

Gamebooks takes place on 4-6 May 2022. The seminar will be held at Tampere University, Finland. The seminar is free of charge. Remote participation will be possible as well. The seminar is augmented with a physical visit to The Finnish Museum of Games and other social programme. The seminar is hosted by the Tampere University Game Research Lab and organised in collaboration with the Center of Excellence in Game Culture Studies.

The seminar is free of charge.
