Ethan Gilsdorf & Jonathan Zittrain on How Dungeons & Dragons and Fantasy Prepare You for Law and Life
How is a lawyer like a wizard? How does a courtroom resemble an epic battle? How is a casebook like the Dungeon Master’s Guide? If you played Dungeons & Dragons in another age, or today, then you know this enormously influential role-playing gaming, which shaped the video gaming industry and geek culture, can be perfect training ground for law and life.
In this informal talk and conversation, Ethan Gilsdorf — journalist, 17th level geek, and author of Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks — joins the Berkman Center’s Jonathan Zittrain to discuss how D&D’s inherent storytelling skills can champion a role for creative play space in both your work and leisure life.
