The Rhetoric, Politics, and Gaming series at The Ohio State University brings students and faculty together once a month to play games together and then discuss the political and social implications of the experience. The series provides a venue for hands-on critical engagement with games and game culture. Though the series is still fairly new, once monthly events are lively and well-attended.
This morning, I talked with the coordinators of RPG series, James Harris, Tiffany Salter, and Andrew Smart, and they offered stories, insights, and advice for others who might like to start a similar event at their own institution. Watch the interview here:
How do you see a series like this fitting into work in your own department? Are you already doing similar work? Leave a comment below, and be sure to join us this Friday, 5/1 at 7pm EST for a #drcchat on Twitter about gaming and social justice.
