CFP - Digital Shorts - Gaming and VR

The third annual RGS-IBG Digital Geographies Research Group Symposium will be taking place at the University of Birmingham on 3 July 2019 examining ‘The geographies of gaming and VR’.

The one-day symposium will host a series of papers covering geographical perspectives on gaming and VR (whether space, materiality, digitality, virtuality, or technological, social and cultural approaches). There will also be fun digital shorts where presenters will give a short taster their research in challenging 2-minute time-slots.

Digital Shorts: In order to represent the breadth of research examining gaming and VR within geography (and beyond!) as well as to facilitate networking, participants are invited to give a 2-minute ‘digital short’. This format has proved popular at our previous symposia, and can be a fun and challenging way to give a taster or your research to a wide audience.

We have received a number of submissions for full papers, but would now like to call for further submissions to the digital shorts programme. We welcome interdisciplinary, creative, and experimental submissions to bring new and interesting work to the programme. Digital shorts are especially suitable for PGR students, creative practitioners, and those with limited time to put together a longer paper, but who want to contributing to this growing field.

Time for networking and socialising will be built into the programme for the Symposium. We will also be offering online-only attendance for those unable to travel in person.

 Abstracts are due 1 May 2019.

Please use the abstract submission form (use the dropdown to select “digital shorts”), available at:!An2QPFfWfhgviIwmM2Q15D7FfOn7bw
