The Centre of Excellence in Game Culture Studies brings together leading expertise in game culture studies to develop original theoretical and empirical approaches that are crucial for understanding, anticipating and influencing the impact games have on culture and society.
The CoE’s work is focused on four interconnected themes: the meaning and form of games; the creation and production of games; players and player communities; and the societal framing of games.
