Seeking presentations for the "Pedagogy" section of the 2012 conference of the SW/TX PCA/ACA on the subject of teaching video games as primary texts. Many instructors have begun using videogames as teaching tools, but recent developments in video game theory allow for interpretation and analysis of these texts *as texts*, not merely as vehicles for tangential applications. Possible topics for this session include but are not limited to: Strategies for teaching a particular game; Teaching gaming theory; Ludology and pedagogy; Convincing your department/institution to support gaming studies.

Please submit 300-word proposals as Word attachments to Shelley S. Rees at srees@usao.edu by 1 December 2011.
The conference registration deadline is December 31, 2011. All participants must register by that date or they will not be permitted to present or appear in the program.
