Lightning Lunch “Games and Play” September 26, 2018

Sponsored by the Jackman Humanities Institute, our monthly lightning lunches focus on a specific topic or contemporary issue with experts from different disciplines to explore threads of commonality and nuance. It is always our hope that these lightning lunches will lead to the formation of new networks, research projects, and shared knowledge. To that end, this lightning lunch focuses on the topic of Games and Play. Our speakers present for 7 minutes followed by lunch and informal discussion on the role of games and play within and beyond the university. We are extremely fortunate to have three scholars who work closely with game communities and industry partners in their research and teaching.
