Everybody seems to love LEGO, and the little plastic bricks have become an international phenomenon. Dr. Nick Taylor and Dr. Sarah Evans will discuss their new book LEGOfied: Building Blocks as Media, and explore the multi-faceted LEGO fandom, the role of hobbyist enthusiasts and content producers, and how gender plays into the experiences, practices, and products of LEGO builders and artists. The first 40 people to register from the NC State community (current students, faculty, or staff with an NCSU email address), will receive a kit of LEGO bricks hand-picked by Nick and Sarah so that you can build along during the talk! Kits can be picked up at the Hill Library or will be mailed (US addresses only). This program is part of the Making Space series, sponsored by Eastman University Engagement Fund.
