Join us at TAG to watch the first of the Games Intitute ADE Speaker Series featuring Dr. Akil Fletcher, Cyan DeVeaux and Dr. Steven Dashiell, in a panel that highlights emerging scholars in Black game studies. Panelists will present recent and/or ongoing work, sharing a glimpse of the emerging research questions animating the field. Topics include Black worldbuilding in and across games (Fletcher), perceptions of Black male exceptionalism in gaming cultures (Dashiell), and the relationship between avatar representation and Black user experience in social VR (DeVeaux).
All are welcome, and there will be snacks! No registration required for the watch party.
