  Cygnet Steer: Mythology, Philosophy and Video Games  
(Academic)

Cygnet Steer, an instructor in the Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literature at Virginia Tech, presents a talk about how video games engage us in similar experiences as mythology and philosophy, including moral and ethical decision making, concepts and misconceptions of gender and race, the concept of hero and quest, and the formation of communities.

The Center for Humanities at Virginia Tech presents a broad range of expert engagement with topics focusing on the human condition broadly conceived, from history to societal issues to performance to literature to the intersection of humanities and technology, all in an effort to promote engagement with topics that enlighten and broaden understanding of the human experience, identity, and humanistic concerns about the world.

Please join us as we hold a series of talks where Virginia Tech faculty in the humanities might discuss the broad significance of their research in ways that connect to people from the community. There will be a brief question and answer following the talk.
