Eadington Fellow Colloquium — 2017

"Comparing the Professionalization of Professional Gamblers and Pro Video Game Players" a lecture by Mark Johnson, postdoctoral fellow in the science and technology studies unit, University of York. Johnson’s research focuses on professional gameplay of all kinds - video games, gambling games, board games - and numerous other topics within game studies. He is also a former professional poker player, a multiple video game world record holder, an independent game developer, and a freelance games writer. During this fellowship, Johnson will investigate the depictions and portrayals of professional gamblers over the past few decades. He is particularly interested in the tension between concepts of "professionalism" - reliable, regular, income - and "gambling" in constructing and relating the life stories and career paths of professional gamblers.
