Christopher Paul

Join author Christopher Paul for a discussion about his latest book, Free-to-Play: Mobile Video Games, Bias, and Norms (MIT Press), an examination of free-to-play and mobile games that traces what is valued and what is marginalized in discussions of games. Free-to-play and mobile games appeal to a different kind of player, many of whom are women and many of whom prefer different genres of games than multi-level action-oriented killing fests. It's not a coincidence that some of the few free-to-play games that have been praised by games journalists are League of Legends and World of Tanks.

The event is free. Please consider making a donation to the Talevich Scholarship Fund, which provides $1,000 to a Communication and Media student to offset the cost of working in a professional internship. Registrants will begin to receive the Zoom link by email beginning approximately 48 hours prior to the event. Be sure you add the Eventbrite address,, to your Safe Senders list or check your Junk folder for the email. 

Presented by the Seattle U Communication and Media Department and College of Arts and Sciences and Elliott Bay Book Company.
