Hi! We moved webservers. Please let me know if you see anything wonky. Thanks! (I already know the security certs are wonky, it's on my to-do list [also, I accidentally restored from the wrong database backup, so I'm merging back in the changes from the last 3 weeks.]).

Larp: Disaster Reporting in Absurdistan

presented by Noah Arjomand. There has been an explosion on a Caspian Sea oil rig off the cost of post-communist Absurdistan. Foreign journalists scramble to cover the story with help from local fixers. Players will take on the roles of correspondents, fixers, editors and local interviewees to simulate the excitement, creativity and confusion of international newsmaking. The LARP will be followed by a discussion of how knowledge gets transformed through translation and in the reporting process. NOTE: Half the players will need a phone running iOS or Android and headphones (several pairs of the latter will be available to borrow)
