Games, Cognition, and Emotion
Conference on Cognitive Studies of the Video Game Experience
5. / 6. Juli 2013, Universität Hamburg
About the Conference
The conference Games, Cognition, and Emotion focuses on the experience of playing video games from a cognitive perspective. Within the field of media studies (and film studies in particular) cognitive psychology has had a strong influence on the theoretical modeling of audience activity and specific aesthetic experiences, such as empathy, identification, and the emotions. The conference aims to bring together scholars from different disciplines to discuss how cognitive psychology can be used as a theoretical framework for describing player’s cognitive, affective and bodily responses to playing video games, and how it can inform the analysis of video games as artifacts designed to elicit such responses.
