DMG Talks #2: Feminist Game Salon

Friday, December 13, 2013
7:00pm - 10:00pm

Dames Making Games is an explicitly feminist organization that strives to support diversity in the game-making community. This salon, part of an ongoing series, intends to open a conversation about our various feminisms (and other perspectives) among members of both DMG and the broader community.

Please join us for an open conversation revolving questions such as what is a feminist game? What is a feminist game-maker? Are games made within DMG inherently feminist? Can our actions as game-makers in this community contribute to broader change in game culture? We will ground our discussion on the below article in order to have an object to speak with (like a book club!).

Reading: Self-Saving Princess: Feminism and Post-Play Narrative Modding by Alex Layne and Samantha Blackmon from the special issue on Feminist Games Studies of Ada: A Journal of Gender, New Media & Technology.

Facilitated by Alison Harvey
