Just a quick post to recap on our third HGN event, for our (Post) Colonialism theme, that took place on 15 December. We were pleased that the panellists and the audience, generated a fascinating discussion and raised lots of thought-provoking questions. In case you missed this, or would like to watch it again, you can find the video of the event below.
This was the final event of our third theme, and we are thankful to the many people who contributed to the theme over the three months that it ran for. You can check out the articles and posts from the contributors here.
We now move onto theme four, Education. Whether through formal use of games in the classroom or informal learning through play, students of all ages develop an interest in particular periods and events by engaging with digital and analogue games of all kinds and we’re keen to explore different approaches. We’ve already had our first contribution to the theme, where Rosalind Hulse has written about the challenges and lessons of Holocaust-themed TRPGs. You can read that post here. We are currently looking for further contributions for the Education theme, if you are interested please read the call for contributions.
As before, the contributions will lead us into our theme event, which we currently expect to take place in early April. We’ll confirm the date, and announce our panellists, soon.
