Re-Program, Re-Play, Rewind: an alternative history of computer game creation in 1980s Britain
‘Re-program, re-play, rewind: an alternative history of computer game creation in 1980s Britain’ is an AHRC early career fellowship award (2016-2017) that examines the role of type-in computer program listings found in magazines and books during the 1980s. The project will collect oral histories and interviews with people who wrote and used program listings for the various microcomputers that were available in schools, homes and the wider community. The research will also explore ways of reading and presenting these listings in a variety of ways that will be useful for academics, museums, libraries and archives.
