This morning, I was talking about larp in an academic seminar called Research Methodologies: Embodiment – and the study of cultural and artistic practices, organized at the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies. The title of my presentation was Embodied Larp – Questions of embodied participation in the games ‘Luminescence’ and ‘the Plastic Cup’.

It’s always fun to talk about roleplaying games to an audience unfamiliar with them, because then you remember why its so cool in the first place. Inside the bubble its easy to lose perspective, but when you have to explain things to people who have never played roleplaying games, you remember how extraordinary it is.
