On May 21, Hartmut Koenitz and I hosted a public lecture by Janet Murray at Utrecht University in close cooperation with the new professorship in Interactive Narrative Design at the HKU.
Who’s Afraid of the Holodeck: Facing the Future of Digital Narrative without Ludoparanoia
In the light of MIT’s 2017 publication of an expanded and updated version of her classic 1997 book “Hamlet on the Holodeck,” Janet Murray examines the ways in which the vision of the Star Trek Holodeck still serves as a reference point for the many things we desire and fear about the future of digital narrative. Murray also revisits the often contested territory where games and stories intersect.
Hartmut and his team have uploaded the lecture to YouTube, so have a look!
