CRDM Symposium: Call for abstracts to participate in student sessions

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 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)
