Performative and Eidetic Simulations

Three Imaginary Regimes

Elad Magomedov

Simulation, Fetishism and World Domination

Using Baudrillard to Analyse American Discourse

Charles Campbell

the only reality is virtual reality. It is watching that makes it real and that constitutes justice in a regime of compulsory spectatorship. According to Baudrillard, in American hyperreality, everything will come to take the form of simulation, since

An Age of Simulation

Poetry's Tall Tales and Short Stories

Stan Smith

Jean Baudrillard’s essay, ‘Simulacra and Simulations’, speaks of the postmodern condition as one in which the only ‘reality’ is a virtual one, constituted in the interminable play of signifiers which saturate our experience. Today, he argues, Simulation is no longer … of a territory, a referential being or a substance. It is the generation by models of a real without origin or reality: the hyperreal. The territory no longer precedes the map, nor survives it. Henceforth, it is the map that precedes the territory … it is the map that engenders the territory. … It is the real, and not the map, whose vestiges subsist here and there, in the deserts which are … our own. The desert of the real itself.

Play a starring role in your textbook: A digital web platform with an embedded role-playing game

Laura Spielvogel and Christian Spielvogel

In this report, we introduce our digital e-textbook web platform with an integrated role-playing game, which has been created for 'introduction to anthropology' courses. We believe that textbooks have the potential to do more to motivate students' pursuit of learning if their material (topically organised chapters supported by leading theories, concepts and ideas in a discipline) is tied to an engaging role-playing narrative whereby students can access, analyse, critique and apply information as characters in a simulation. Thus, we have created a two-sided platform that allows students to flip between a macro context and a role-playing simulation. The macro context explores the challenges and rewards of fieldwork, the politics surrounding ethnographic representation and the contested theories of culture. These issues are typically covered in a print-based anthropology textbook but here they have additional digital features. These topics are then applied in a role-playing simulation, Marriage of Cultures, that allows each student anonymously to play a character in a three to four week, open-ended narrative structured around the imaginary wedding of a Japanese bride and her Italian-American groom.

Naturalizing Aesthetic Experience

The Role of (Liberated) Embodied Simulation

Vittorio Gallese

( Gallese and Guerra 2012 , 2014 , 2015 ), neuroscience can contribute to theoretical debates on mediated experience, bodily engagement in aesthetic experience, new theories of enactment, and simulation. This approach allows scholars in diverse fields to
