Title: Games + Communication Ante-Conference Friday May 24 in Washington, DC.

Body: ​

The Games + Communication Ante-Conference (sponsored by ICA Game Studies and the AU Game Lab, along with many others) is happening in just over a week!

We are excited to announce that our keynote speaker will be Mia Consalvo. She’ll be speaking about “Why Game Live Streaming Matters: An Examination of its Cultural, Social, Economic and Political Impacts (So Far).” You can find out more at our website

In addition, we have a rich program involving everything from important keywords in game studies to emerging research, showcases, demos and even talks about how game design labs work in and across universities today. A little something for anyone interested in game studies and communications. We also have a great lunch and reception planned.
