Games in the Cross Media Galaxy — Or, Is the Story Lost in Translation?
Abstract: The talk will examine the role of games in the cross-media publishing industry, and describe the conditions for content transfer. Games may contain all the basic elements of other massmedia products, such as movies and novels, but are limited by certain structural constraints, which make them very different from their fictional counterparts. The field of cross-media is a very fruitful point of entry to the study of games, and vice versa.

Espen Aarseth is Head of Research at the Center for Computer Games Research, IT University of  Copenhagen (http://game.itu.dk) and Professor II, at the Dept of Media and Communication, University of Oslo. He is co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of Game Studies (gamestudies.org) and bestknown for his comparative media study of games and literature, Cybertext (1997).
