Mit Geschichte spielen. Geschichte von und in digitalen Spielen (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Jan Müggenburg

Termin:
wöchentlich | Montag | 10:15 - 11:45 | 11.04.2022 - 08.07.2022 | C 5.325

Inhalt: Historische Orte, Personen, die den Lauf der Geschichte verändert haben, oder legendäre Schlachten und Konflikte sind in Computerspielen allgegenwärtig. Vor allem beliebte Titel wie Red Dead Redemption II oder Assassin's Creed Odyssey bemühen sich um Authentizität und eine genaue Darstellung der Vergangenheit. Die Geschichte der Videospiele ist jedoch voll von Spielen, die auf andere Weise "mit der Geschichte spielen", indem sie beispielsweise kontrafaktische Geschichten erfinden, vergangene Zukünfte erforschen oder ganze menschliche Geschichten modellieren. Ein Sonderfall sind Spiele wie die Tomb Raider-Reihe, die es dem Spieler erlauben, in einer künstlichen Welt zum Archäologen oder Historiker zu werden. Nicht zuletzt entdecken reale Archäologen, dass Spiele wie No Man's Sky, die eine "prozedurale Generierung" einsetzen, um eine Vielzahl von Planeten und Umgebungen zu schaffen, zu Orten für tatsächliche archäologische Forschung werden können. Im Mittelpunkt des Seminars steht jedoch nicht nur die Frage, wie historische Epochen und Ereignisse in Computerspielen dargestellt, verändert oder als alternative Szenarien simuliert werden. Vielmehr verweist die Frage des ‚Playing with History' auf ein viel grundsätzlicheres Problem innerhalb der Medienwissenschaft: Geschichtsschreibung ist immer eine konstruktive Praxis, die in, mit und durch Medien stattfindet und nie einfach eine exakte Darstellung der Vergangenheit ist. Daher wird sich das Seminar mit Fragen wie: Verändert das 'Spielen von Geschichte' unser Geschichtsverständnis?", "Was können uns Ego-Shooter wie Call of Duty über die 'Realität' historischer Konflikte lehren? Bietet uns die Nachstellung der Boston Tea Party in Assassin's Creed III einen authentischen Einblick in die Geschichte der amerikanischen Revolution? Bevorzugen Simulationen wie Civilization VI bestimmte koloniale oder imperialistische Perspektiven? Und was bedeutet es eigentlich für unser Geschichtsverständnis, wenn wir in Fallout IV durch eine post-apokalyptische Welt wandern, die unsere eigene sein könnte?

History of Computing: The Early Digital (Seminar)

Inhalt: Today, the term "digital" is used to describe and explain pretty much all the major transformations of our time. Communication, work, friendship, love, intelligence, mobility, leisure, entertainment and, last but not least, education are all associated with a process that is commonly referred to as »digitization« and that has significantly changed human life on our planet in recent decades. While when using the term we are recognizing that the cultural transformations of our time share a deep connection to the technology of digital computing, sometimes it is not entirely clear what people actually mean when they refer to something as »digital«. But if we don't want to accept the term "digital“ as a meaningless marker for everything present, but instead want to find out why the term has become so ubiquitous and universal, we need to go back in time and visit some of the many media-historical sites in the middle of the 20th century where "digitality" had its origins.

In this course, we will thus look at the people, machines, and practices that shaped the technologies and techniques that we today call »digital«. From John von Neumann to Douglas Engelbart and from the ENIAC to the invention of the computer mouse we will cover a period from 1945 to 1970 where the first electronic digital computers were created, and the computer industry began to develop. Taking into account recent publications in the field of computer history, we will also ask how the »digital« relates to the categories of race, class, gender, and disability. For example, we will consider the important role of women in the history of computing and critically assess problematic concepts such as the notion of a 'normal computer user’.

Inhalt: This course will cover multiple perspectives on disability as it relates to digital media, technology, and the design of interactive systems. Readings will draw from research in media studies, disability studies, assistive technology, and human-computer interaction. We will look at historical constellations of digital barriers as well as contemporary media and technologies as they relate to people with disabilities.

Inhalt: This course is recommended for students planning to develop an theoretical/historical or a technological research project. In the course of the seminar we will deal with the challenges of scientific writing. First, we will deal with the question of how exactly theoretical/historical and technological research can be conducted in the field of digital media, discussing different scientific methods. In the further course of the seminar we will deal with the individual steps of project planning, the research and search for suitable research literature and other sources, as well as helpful strategies for constructing a scientific argument and the preparation of a draft manuscript. 

This is a 10 CP module - if you took your assessment in the other 5CP course, you should take part without taking the assessment.

Quality Circle Major Digital Media (Arbeitsgemeinschaft)

Dozent/in: Jan Müggenburg, Jan Teichmüller

Termin:
Einzeltermin | Mo, 20.06.2022, 13:00 - Mo, 20.06.2022, 14:00 | Online-Veranstaltung | Zoom-Veranstaltung

Inhalt: Dear students, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the quality circle (QZ) for the bachelor’s program Digital Media, which will be taking place online on June 20 at 1 pm Meeting-ID: 915 5612 2585 Kenncode: QZMDM What are quality circles? Quality circles are an important tool for advancement of your study programs, as well as the teaching that is being offered within them. The quality circle is an opportunity for students and lecturers to come together and discuss both the strengths and the weaknesses of the program with the program Director as well as other lecturers. The fact that these quality circles are conducted regularly is a defining feature of the quality development at Leuphana University Lüneburg. When do quality circles take place? Quality circles are conducted annually for major programs and every two years for minor programs. Why is it important for you to attend? The quality circle is designed as a feedback tool and is supposed to bring together students and lecturers to work together to improve a program and/or talk about current problems. A report documenting the results of the quality circle will be composed after that. Based on this report, measures will be taken to improve the study program. At the next quality circle, there will be a status update in how far the measures have been implemented. Therefore, the quality circle is a space for students to exert direct influence on their study programs. Who is responsible for the quality circles? If you have a specific query relating to the major, please contact the program director, Prof. Dr. Jan Müggenburg (jan.mueggenburg@leuphana.de). A short summary of everything you need to know about quality circles at Leuphana University Lüneburg can be found at: https://bit.ly/2Iz0FrD (German language) In case you want to prepare for the quality circle, the program-screening-data for the program has been made available on myStudy (material). I would like to thank you in advance for taking an interest and am looking forward to an animated exchange of ideas Best Wishes, Jan Müggenburg
