Humour and Games Podcast – Season 2 – Interview 1: Jaako Stenros

Posted by Andrei Zanescu

Welcome back!

This week, we have our full interview with Dr. Jaako Stenros on Nordic Larp and the role of humour in dark or transgressive play.

Dr. Stenros is a lecturer at the University of Turku and a member of the Centre of Excellent in Culture, a joint project between Tampere University, the University of Turku, and the University of Jyväskylä. Stenros has also collaborated with artists and designers to create ludic experiences and has curated many exhibitions at the Finnish Museum of Games. Stenros’ research interests include norm-defying play, game jams, queer play, role-playing games, pervasive games, game rules, and playfulness.

As always, available for you to listen on the ConnectingToGame website, Youtube, Apple Podcasts, Spotify.
