OLGA USACHOVA (U PADUA): DIGITALITIES OF WAR – PL(R)AY FOR UKRAINE
27 JUNE 2022, 6.00-7.30 P.M.
ONLINE LECTURE

Organizers: Dr. Stephan Görland & the Digital Diaspora Lab

Considering the recent ongoing war in the European continent after more than 75 years of peace and the predominant narrative of “never (war) again”, the Russian invasion of Ukraine showed that militarization could and should be explored not only by paying attention to the materiality but also to the use of information technologies. In this presentation, I aim to showcase the role of information and gaming technologies as a form of resistance to military invasion in Ukraine.
