Expanded Course Description
Games and game-playing have always been an important part of culture, as second-order models of the world and as emblems of war, power, and status. Games form an important way in which children learn about the world, and they both shape and reinforce adult conceptions of power and the way the world is arranged. This course will study the deep history of games and gaming, exploring the power of games in pre-modern cultures and in modern American culture, and looking at issues of cultural influence, impact, race, gender, and the meanings embedded in these long-lasting and important practices. The course will involve reading, analysis, and the playing of actual games.
