I currently have 17 students enrolled in my summer 2008 class on "Video games and mass communication" -- that's found under "J676" in the School of Journalism & Mass Communication during the first 4-week summer session in the timetable -- so we certainly have room for a few more. We'll be bringing in a nice parade of guest lecturers in both gaming research and gaming development, as well as watching some films (Tron! The King of Kong! Wargames!) and even playing some games (just ordered our Wii system today). And of course there will be lots of reading and writing, as with all of my classes, but that will be fun too. Both undergraduates and graduate students are welcome to sign up.
