In this Literature Matters panel, Dr. Josh (WGST & English) will outline some key similarities and differences between narrative analysis and affordances in literature and/vs. video games.

In particular, he will discuss how video game play provides unique opportunities for materializing identity and culture, specifically in the video game Never Alone/Kisima Ingitchuna based on a traditional Iñupiaq story.
