The Canadian Game Studies Association’s annual conference will take place in Frederiction, New Brunswick from May 30-31 as part of the wider Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. The annual CGSA event is the premier digital game studies gathering in this country. This year’s theme is “Coasts and Continents: Exploring People and Places.” See the call for presentation proposals below for more info:
We invite both national and international paper proposals on digital games research, broadly defined. In keeping with this year’s Congress theme, we also encourage work that examines game and player boundaries and boarders, spaces and places, whether that be in Multiplayer Online Spaces or in the space and place of everyday lives, from couches in living rooms to massive gaming LANs or the furthest reaches of mobile augmented reality play.
Please send an extended abstract of no more than 500 words for paper proposals, or a summary of a proposed panel of no more than 1,000 words to your 2011 Conference Co-Chairs, either Suzanne de Castell or Nick Taylor by Feb 10, 2011.
Looking forward to seeing you in the Maritimes!
– Your friendly neighborhood CGSA
