Dear CRDM Students,
On March 27-28, the CRDM will hold its annual symposium with this year’s theme being: Hybrid Play. The symposium is organized by Dr. Adriana de Souza e Silva, and the associate organizer is Dr. Nick Taylor.
As a part of this year’s symposium, select students will have the opportunity to work with one of our invited speakers to receive feedback on a work-in-progress. If you would like the opportunity to work with one of these invited speakers, please contact Ragan Glover at firstname.lastname@example.org
after you have read both the description and requirements. In this email, please indicate which invited speaker(s) you are most interested in working with along with a brief abstract of the work you would like to discuss with the invited speaker. Please note, the abstract does not need to reflect an already-completed work. The deadline for abstract submission is Wednesday, January 17
. Please respond promptly: space is limited!
Student panels will occur Tuesday, March 27 from 9am-10:20am. During this time, each speaker will work with two students to provide feedback on one of their works-in-progress. The invited speakers and their area of expertise include:
Shira Chess: mobile gaming, casual gaming, gender and play, feminist game studies, queerness and gaming
Kishonna Gray: intersectional feminism, online gaming, citational politics, games and race, gender and identity, critical race theory

- You must submit your work-in-progress to the speaker at least one-month before the symposium to allow the speaker sufficient time to review your work
- Your work-in-progress need not be finished, but should reflect careful thought and revision
- You must be willing to work with the invited speaker on March 27 between 9-10AM (during Panel Session 1)
