Villanova University, 800 East Lancaster Avenue, Villanova, PA, USA (Map & Directions)
Falvey Memorial Library at Villanova University is once again proud to host the second of our annual series on popular culture, VuPop 2, taking place at Falvey Library on June 9th, 2014. This year, this FREE conference will focus on Interactive Fiction in Print and Online and includes a free lunch - and in the spirit of VuPop - a free afternoon popcorn snack!
ABOUT VUPOP 2: While storytelling probably began as a very fluid process, several centuries of the printed book have given fiction an air of inflexibility and inevitability. However, for several decades, authors of gamebooks like Choose Your Own Adventure and Fighting Fantasy have been finding ways to directly involve the reader in the narrative of the book and to encompass multiple possibilities within a single volume. Computer games and other digital media have brought fiction into new and infinitely variable realms. This conference will examine the evolution of interactive fiction and discuss ways in which it can be studied and used pedagogically. Schedule of speakers and events can be found here.

REGISTRATION: Registration for this event is now open. As with last year, there is no cost for attending, and lunch will be provided for attendees. If interested, please fill out our online form so we can estimate our attendance for this year. An informal game night will follow the presentations. Thank you for your time and we hope to see you June 9th.
