On Wednesday we’ll be doing this:

On Thursday Rune Klevjer is giving a lecture on a topic that’s very relevant to the second focus area in this class, games and society, and so we’ll be taking an excursion and going to that lecture in the second half of the class (from 3 pm till 4). During the first half of the class we’ll discuss Serfaty’s chapters that we read this week, and talk about confessional and fictional blogs.

I handed out a worksheet for this week last Thursday, which includes the blog assignment that is due next Wednesday. This will be the last worksheet this semester.
