Gaming Neomedievally: A Festive Video Game Workshop and Poster Session
The gaming workshop and poster session has grown since MEMO started it a few years ago, and once again we're looking for academic gamers who would be willing to share their favorite neo-medieval games with the rest of the medievalist community. Participants need to be able to provide the game and the system to run it (whether a laptop or game console); other A/V equipment such as televisions can be reserved through Congress channels. In addition to bringing the game, participants are asked to provide an informational "poster" that explores some aspect(s) of the
game's neo-medievalism. Posters can be in hard copy format or in Powerpoint; if the latter, please also bring a laptop on which to run the presentation. Send proposals to Lauryn Mayer (lmayer@washjeff.edu). Deadline: September 10th.
