Representations of Gender in Video Games / departure talk
23. Feber 2018 @ 19:00 - 22:00
Prof. em. Dr.in Uta Brandes
International Gender Design Network, Cologne
We are body, we have a body, we may own a body. And this body as well as its image can be distorted, rearranged, blurred. This applies to both the body of flesh and blood and the virtual one. The idea of a natural body of humans is as obsolete as it is for a virtual body, an avatar or cyborg.
Prof. Brandes will position her long-term research on gender in design and its still highly stereotypical ideology of socially constructed male and female roles towards gender representations in video games. In her lecture she will transfer human gender codes to the field of virtual characters and their body designs. In an exemplary way she will analyze the appearance of genders in most recent games.
