PLAYING WITH WORDS: WRITING FOR VIDEO GAMES FROM A WOMAN’S PERSPECTIVE
Friday, October 30, 2015
10:00 to 11:30
<p>The world of video and online gaming is often constructed as a bastion of maleness, sometimes giving rise to incidents of sexism and outright misogyny in the form of sexualized female characters in games and violent verbal behaviour targeting women gamers. Fighting against this culture of machismo are many women in the gaming industry&mdash;including Tanya X. Short, Samantha Cook, and Kim Hoang, the panelists for this session&mdash;who are creating and producing games that subvert gender-based stereotypes and seek to change an environment that can be very hostile to women.</p>
<p>The English Symposium Committee would like to thank The Faculty of Science and General Studies for sponsoring this event, and Vanier&rsquo;s Print Shop, Bookstore, Student Services, and Communications Department for assisting with various aspects of it.</p>
