UOC-LABoral online seminar: “Digital Culture and Entertainment: New Games and Players in Creative Industries”

from November 18th to December 16th 2009

LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, Gijón, Spain

LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial and Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) are organising a seminar “Digital Culture and Entertainment: New Games and Players in Creative Industries” whose mandate is to interrelate digital art and cultural practices with the general context of digital entertainment, while also providing an overview of the most significant and innovative intersections of gaming culture, new media and technology, with a particular emphasis on digital leisure. The seminar is a new addition to the activities of Mediateca Expandida, opened this October at LABoral. The idea is to explore the exhibition and research of audiovisual projects which will then be added to the holdings of the art centre’s mediatheque.

This seminar is a follow-up to the “Innovation in Digital Art and Culture” seminar held as part of the summer courses last July. Its mission is to study gaming culture’s impact on society. That is, the aesthetics, dynamics and logics of videogames, as well as how they relate with other forms of digital entertainment and cultural expressions, including art, cinema, television and music, that are adopting new models in the relationship between the emitter and the receiver of the media-driven message. In the entertainment society, we are all players and inhabit, create and define the various levels of a massive multiplayer environment.

The “Digital Culture and Entertainment” course will take place off-site, in the virtual campus, from November 18th to December 16th with the participation of renowned international experts such as Jose Luis de Vicente, Daphne Dragona, Domenico Quaranta, Raquel Renno, Pau Waelder. The seminars program are coordinated by Rosina Gómez-Baeza and Pau Alsina.

The course will have a duration of 25 hours. On completion, participants will obtain 1 ECTS credit. Full information is available at:

Enrolment in the course is open until November 16th, and may be formalised at:
