February 28, 2014 - IAS faculty  member Rob Allen was invited in February to the Institute for Advanced Study of Media Cultures of Computer Simulation (MECS) at Leuphana University in Lüneburg, Germany. The two-day workshop, “War Games: Computer Simulation, Sovereignty, and the Military,” brought together researchers from diverse disciplines to discuss critical perspectives on the historical and contemporary use of simulations and games by global militaries. Allen will be returning to MECS for six months as a research fellow, beginning in April.
