Angry-Birds of a Feather Flock Together! Game Scholars Birds of a Feather Discussion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This proposed session will focus on discussions regarding games, gamification, game studies, game design, ludology, narratology, third spaces, games and pedagogy, and any other scholarly niches related to game studies.

We encourage HASTAC2015 conference-goers, particularly our fellow 2015 HASTAC Scholars, to join us for an unconference-like, fireside chat experience, by attending this Birds of a Feather session to share, discuss and otherwise engage in talks about game studies in a casual, relaxed atmosphere.

This session will encourage those who have similar research agendas to get together and chat about their work, possibly forming future collaborative writing relationships beyond the scope of the conference.

It's all about networking and learning from each other. Gamers and game scholars, be it console-players, computer gamers, app-obsessed folks -- we want YOU to join us!
