Identity in Gaming - Panel Discussion & Games Showcase

The Vice President's Office for Diversity and Community Affairs and the Sexuality, Women and Gender Project Present:

IDENTITY IN GAMING
Thursday, January 28th, 2016
Location:
Panel Discussion is in Milbank Chapel at 4pm
Games showcase begins at 5:30pm immediately after the panel discussion, in Everett Lounge.

Panelists include:
Professors Naomi Clark (NYU), Mary Flanagan (Dartmouth), Joey Lee (Teachers College Columbia University), as well as, Sara Cornish (Games For Change)
Moderated by:
Austin Walker, games journalist

Join us for a panel about how games (indie and beyond) integrate exploration of marginalized identities and can facilitate growth and catharsis for players. We will begin to question how games can be used to promote player empowerment, but also to promote awareness for those who occupy identities with power and privilege.

The panel discussion will be followed by an informal games showcase that will give you a chance to play the hottest games that explore identity in digital, real world, and card or board game formats.
