German

After completing this course students are expected to have a theoretical and critical knowledge of the play-element in culture.

The course shows that playing or gaming are an anthropological constant in culture and aims to contribute to an ethnological understanding and appreciation of games and play. Special emphasis will be placed on the larger culture around games and gaming, as games are always enacted in specific social settings and contexts.
