What do we mean when we say we’re “adding to the scientific literature”?

July 2 @ 2:00 pm
Room AMBE 101, Arts Millenium Building
NUIG,

  Abstract: Every undergrad finds out very fast that one of the most important activities of the faculty is publishing papers. Scientific papers are the coin of the realm in everything from health psychology to high-particle physics. No wonder, considering so much is tied to publication: communicating research results to peers, staking a claim on a discovery or a new approach, building personal or lab prestige, and landing a job or advancing in the tenure track. Supposedly, all the previously…

July 3 @ 6:00 pm
Tom Duddy Seminar Room, Philosophy Department Morrisroe House
Distillery Road,

Glitching the Narrative Discourse: An Essay in Malfunction

July 22 @ 12:00 pm
Seminar Room G010, Hardiman Research Building,

    While the word “glitch” is often still used to connote catastrophic failure, videogamers have come to view glitches opportunistically, as chances to intervene in game texts in ways unforeseen (and often unforeseeable) by their developers. My presentation draws on a variety of game glitches and the alternate modes of textual navigation they enable to demonstrate how the glitch forces us to rethink even such basic concepts as plot, character, temporality, and point of view, ultimately showing how the…
