Game PhDs will be produced in Tampere, Finland

According to Tietokone magazine (30 Dec 08), University of Tampere will develop the research and teaching of new media and information technology by fusing two departments (information and hypermedia) into one Department of Information Research and Interactive Media.

The key areas of the new department will be information search and acquisition, game research, social media, information practices in learning and knowledge management of organizations. The master's program of hypermedia was established last autumn but now the game researchers can study right up to PhD.

What a great step for game research - a field that in my opinion is one of the most dynamic and fascinating ones in contemporary new media research.
