Keywords for Video Game Studies Colloquium
Saturday, May 19, 2012
8 AM to 3 PM
Communication 202
University of Washington, Seattle

The Keywords for Video Game Studies graduate interest group (GIG) at the University of Washington invites game scholars, artists, designers, developers, and enthusiasts to participate in our one-day colloquium on critical gaming.  The colloquium, broadly themed by the keywords “research/design,” is the capstone event to our year-long series of workshop sessions on “democracy,” “time,” “altplay/fandom,” “gold farming,” and “hack/customization” and hopes to provide a space for individuals and groups to present their work, to discuss and collaborate on what it means to study or make digital games, to network, and to play games.
