Date & Time: October 24, 2015 - 10:00am to 4:00pm
Location: Hatcher Graduate Library Gallery Space, Room 100
Event Type: Symposium

In the past few years, issues of gender have become prominent in the discussion around gaming, both as relates to the games themselves and in the larger gaming culture. This symposium aims to critically engage these ongoing narratives, explore how gaming culture can impact broader social spheres, and indicate how gender relations in gaming can be improved going forward through two keynote talks, a series of roundtable discussions, a panel discussion of student gamers, and a game gallery of significant texts. Attendees can expect to participate heavily throughout the day and leave with a deeper understanding of game culture, its social significance, and what its future might entail.

Participation in the symposium is FREE! However, space is limited, so in order to attend you must pre-register using this registration form.

Lunch will be provided.

Keynote Speakers:

Rabindra (Robby) Ratan, assistant professor, Department of Media & Information, Michigan State University
"Avatars for Empowerment: A research trajectory aimed toward reducing social disparity in education through avatar use"

Adrienne Shaw, assistant professor, Department of Media Studies and Production, Temple University
"Representation Matters: Reframing arguments for diversity in digital games"

Sponsored by: University of Michigan Library Computer & Video Game Archive; University of Michigan Library Diversity Council; University of Michigan Institute for Humanities; Ann Arbor District Library.

This is a very nice event. Having to have a symposium with that topic is a great idea to settle everything else. Gender differences should be settled with regards to gaming, for I believe that anyone could be a gamer, set aside the gender. Being a boy or a man doesn't really mean that you are superior to gaming or it is in the nature to be the only great gamer. Girls or ladies on the other hand may also be great for gaming, for they have their very own intellectual and logical skills and knowledge to be used for gaming.
