CEEGS 2024

Central and Eastern European Game Studies conference is a gathering of game scholars organised annually by DiGRA Central and Eastern Europe, but its thematic scope is not limited to regional topics, and it welcomes participants from anywhere in the world. The 2024 conference will be hosted by the Department of Performing and Digital Arts, University of the Peloponnese, Greece.

Games, Art & Performativity

The conference theme, ‘Reimagining Games, Art, and Performativitywill allow us to delve into the historical parallels, intersections, challenges, and tensions traditionally inherent within these three concepts. We therefore invite scholars, researchers, artists, and game design professionals to submit proposals for presentations within one of these thematic areas.

Nafplio the capital of Argolis, is one of the best known and most beautiful cities in Greece. Apart from its administrative function it is also an important tourist centre, busy all year round. According to legend, the city takes its name from its founder, Nauplios, the son of Poseidon and Amimoni. In ancient times Nauplion was basically overshadowed by Argos, which used it as a port from the 7th century BC. The city reached the peak of its glory when it became the capital of the Greek state from 1827 to 1834. On the 8th January 1828 the first governor of Greece, Ioannis Kapodistrias, alighted at Nauplion. The city was full of cafes, and in the salons of notable local families there were balls and literary soirees. A printing press was established and for a short while there was a reading room. On 27th September 1831 Ioannis Kapodistrias was murdered outside the church of Agios Spiridon and, on 25th January 1833, the people of Nauplion welcomed Otto, the first king of Greece. He remained in Nauplion for a short while, until around the end of 1834 when the capital of Greece was moved to Athens.

Nafplio is a city with ancient roots since Mycenaean era; founded in Antiquity, located at the coastal part of Argolis landscape near the sea. Internationally famous for its oranges and lemons, the city has a unique old town centre with emblematic landmarks such as Palamidi, Akronafplia, the small island Bourtzi, the Syntagma Square, the building of Vouleftikon, Fillelinon Square, Kapodistrias Square, Kolokotronis Park and the church of St. Spiridonas among others. Nafplio – the first capital of Greece back in 19th century – is an international touristic destination; a city that gathers important cultural institutions such as the Archaeological Museum, the National Gallery of Greece (Nafplio section), the Harvard University Center for Hellenic Studies in Greece, the Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation, Fougaro Art Center, Public Library Palamides as well as a series of important archaeological sites across Argolis landscape, such as Tirintha, Mycenae. Contemporary sites and spaces of various activities include cinema, municipality’s sports facilities. Nafplio is a city quite near to important locations such as Epidaurus and the international Athens Epidaurus Festival, Mycenae, Argos, Spetses island and 2 hours from Athens, Greece.
