DiGRA 2009 in the UK
Sao Paulo Part II

Update: In Brazil on the 25th

Gonzalo_Frasca_Sao_Carlos_UFSCar I'll be in Sao Paulo by the end of this month. Sao Paulo = Brazil + Great Japanese Food (it doesn't get better than that).

I'm invited by the Federal University of Sao Carlos, and I'll be giving a lecture on Videogames and Communication at the CECH amphitheater at 20h on the 25th. The 26th, I'll give a one-day seminar on Contemporary Game Studies. More information (em portugues) here.

This is the first time I give a lecture in Brazil. A couple of months ago I gave my first in Argentina, too. It's really exciting being able to discuss videogames with people from the region where I grew up. As far as I've seen there's a lot of energy in young developers to push further the local industry. My visit to Argentina was truly great (I'll be back in a couple of months) and I seriously look forward to being in Sao Paulo, the largest, craziest and probably coolest city in South America.



Here´s something I would really like to be able to attend to: Gonzalo Frasca will be giving two lectures in São Paulo, Brazil. (...)


Seja bem-vindo ao Brasil, Frasca!
Você vai gostar de São Paulo e São Carlos.
Sua vinda é muito legal. Depois de conhecer a ludologia, minha pesquisa sobre o uso do RPG de mesa para ensinar história melhorou muito. Para falar a verdade, ela finalmente começou a funcionar...

Wellcome to Brazil, Frasca!
I guess you'll like São Paulo and São Carlos.
Your coming is really cool. After knowing ludology, my research about how to use tabletop RPG to teach history has improved a lot (or has really started...).

(sorry by my English...)

Wellcome and thanks for ludology!

Gonzalo Frasca

Muito obrigado for the comments! I'm really looking forward to my trip to Brazil!
