February 20 Event Canceled

We are very sorry to announce that the Pop! Goes the Culture: Why We Game? event that was to be held on February 20 has been canceled due to low registration rates. Hopefully we will soon have a new, more accessible chance to come together to discuss elements of popular culture.

In the meanwhile, you might want to have a look at the National Public Speaking Competition 2014 page: the competition itself is on March 1 and fast approaching, so come back soon for updates and news.


Pop! Goes the Culture: Why We Game? on February 20

In the next installment of our pop culture themed event series, we are taking on a question that touches the lives of many technology enthusiasts. Video games have evolved from simple 8-bit games to an immersive art form with whole university programs dedicated to analyzing them.

With that in mind, we invite you to come together to ask each other and answer the question: why do we game? What makes us reach over and over again for familiar games as well as new ones? Is it escapism? A thirst for gratification? The stories? Let’s share our thoughts and find out together.

You are welcome to join us at the next Pop! Goes the Culture event complete with great company, valuable insights, and snacks, on February 20 at 6-8pm in room S-416 at Tallinn University. You can keep up with updates about the event and suggest discussion points on the event Facebook page.
