CfP: Workshop: Rethinking Gamification – Leuphana University Lüneburg (15-17 May)

Workshop: Rethinking Gamification – A Workshop about the Potential and Implications of Gamification
(Incubator at Leuphana University, Art & Civic Media Lab at the Centre for Digital Cultures)

This call is for an initial gathering of scholars, practitioners and creatives to start the process of rethinking what “Gamification” means – after the first hype has cooled down. We intend to form a group of critical thinkers in order to develop research perspectives, theoretical positions, concepts and projects that change our ideas of how we will look at gamification. A publication and other forms of presentation are planned to take place, supported by the Centre for Digital Cultures at Leuphana University.
