Discussion with Amanda Ochsner, Ph D Candidate, UW Madison; Danika Raghnild, Audio Producer, Naming is Hard, LLC; Charles McGregor, Game Developer, Tribe Games; Evva Kraikul, Executive Director, GLITCH


Join us for a discussion about the structural inequalities and prejudices present within the video games culture and industry from a variety of viewpoints. We will explore the ways underrepresented genders and races historically have been treated in technological sectors and how they are specifically manifested in video game culture. We will hear from scholars, students, and members of the broader community in the Twin Cities. At the beginning of the event, participate in a social exhibition of games made by students and local developers. Light refreshments will be provided.
