Robin Hunicke’s practice focuses on creating boundary-expanding, experimental game experiences by combining unique concepts and technologies. She works to create games that deliver unexpected emotional outcomes to players. This includes games that are peaceful and introspective, creative and healing as well as experiences that encourage intergenerational and international communication and play.
Hunicke is Associate Professor of Digital Arts & New Media at UC Santa Cruz.
The Center for Cultural Studies will continue to host a Wednesday colloquium series, which features current cultural studies work by campus faculty and visitors. The sessions are informal, normally consisting of a 30-40 minute presentation followed by discussion. We gather at noon, with presentations beginning at 12:15. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunches; the Center will provide coffee, tea, and cookies.
