Taylor\, “Play as Transformative Work” DESCRIPTION:T.L. Taylor\, Professor of Comparative Media Studies at MIT \nProfessor of Comparative Media Studies T.L. Taylor will explore the ways game live streamers are transforming their otherwise private play into public entertainment. She will focus on this new form of creative labor and offer a challenge to current models of IP and fandom\, suggesting the work of professional live streamers is not easily captured by non-commercial frameworks nor simple work/play dichotomies. \nT.L. Taylor is Professor of Comparative Media Studies and co-founder and Director of Research for AnyKey\, an organization dedicated to supporting and developing fair and inclusive esports. She is a qualitative sociologist who has focused on internet and game studies for over two decades. Dr. Taylor’s research explores the interrelations between culture and technology in online leisure environments. Her book Raising the Stakes: E-Sports and the Professionalization of Computer Gaming (MIT Press\, 2012) chronicles the rise of esports and professional computer gaming. Her book about game live streaming – Watch Me Play: Twitch and the Rise of Game Live Streaming (Princeton University Press) – is now out and is the first of its kind to chronicle this emerging media space. \n URL: LOCATION:MIT Building E15\, Room 318 (Open Area)\, 20 Ames Street\, Cambridge\, MA\, 02139\, United States CATEGORIES:Colloquium ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: GEO:42.3608068;-71.0876848 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=MIT Building E15 Room 318 (Open Area) 20 Ames Street Cambridge MA 02139 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=20 Ames Street:geo:-71.0876848,42.3608068 END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
