Welcome to the weekly IMS seminar!
This week we are visited by Maddalena Carfora who will give a presentation of her Wonderland Crossmedia Escape Room.
Description of the seminar
The Wonderland Crossmedia Escape Room is a game where participants find their way through a media maze in a race against the clock.
Based on the story of Alice in Wonderland as a transmedial storyworld that expands and develops with each retelling, Maddalena Carfora has designed the game as part of her PhD project. In her talk, she discusses how the game relates to reading and teaching literature in a mediatized society. The audience will have the chance to test the game.
Maddalena Carfora is a PhD student at the University of Naples "L'Orientale", Department of Literary, Linguistics and Comparative Studies. Her research interests regard the process of interaction between narrative experimentation and intermediality, multimodal literature, videogames and digital culture, as well as metamodernism, posthumanism and ecocriticism. Her work has appeared onRILUNE - Revue des littératures européennes and Poli-Femo - Nuova Serie di Lingua e Letteratura.
