The Utopian Studies Seminar is hosting a discussion of Ahmed Khaled Towfik’s Utopia (2009), which offers a chilling vision of a future neo-liberal world order. Possible Worlds, Alternative Futures will discuss the implications of Towfik’s work for utopian and ludic studies. The projects is co-sponsored by the CUNY Games Network.

We’ve had a great response to our Call for Proposals for the first annual CUNY Games Festival — thanks to all who’ve submitted proposals! After taking a second look at our conference space, we noted we still have room for a few more Posters and Arcade Game Demos. Consequently, we’re extending the CFP deadline for Posters and Game Demos only to Friday, November 1st.
