Keywords for Video Game Studies Returns! Dr. Ashlee Bird Visits Ohio University

It has been a while since I have been able to organize something fun, cool, and bring together fun and cool people. Now that people are willing to travel and do in-person events, I decided to organize a short speaker series for this spring semester: Keywords for Video Game Studies is once again resurrected! It all started as a graduate interest group while I was at the University of Washington, then it was a roundtable at PNASA, then I ran a similar series at the University of Oregon, and one day, I hope to put all of this into book form.

Up first is friend and amazing colleague Dr. Ashlee Bird (University of Notre Dame):

Then in March it will be the inimitable Dr. Kishonna Gray (University of Kentucky) on black praxis and online games, and in April it will be my sister Dr. Alenda Y. Chang (UCSB) on games and the environment. Here is the full line up:
