Tuesday April 18, 2017, 4pm

Interest in video game studies at DePauw has been growing in recent years. To reflect this trend, this panel offers students and faculty members an opportunity to discuss video games as an academic field with special focus on creating a video game canon. How can game studies enhance the education experience of DePauw students? What does a field like Game Studies offer other more traditional subjects? This panel hopes to address these questions and then offer a forum for larger discussion with audience members.
