Monstrosity is the 17th annual Game Research Lab Spring Seminar. The theme changes each year, as do the expert commentators. The Game Research Lab Spring Seminar is the longest running game studies seminar.
The seminar emphasizes work-in-progress submissions, and we strongly encourage submitting late breaking results, working papers, and 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.
Monstrosity takes place on 20-22 April 2021. Due to the ongoing global pandemic, the event is organised online for the first time in its history. 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.
