The first international game history conference is happening in Montreal in just over a week’s time. The History of Games conference features keynotes from Stephen Kline, Erkki Huhtamo, and Henry Lowood, as well as roundtables from notable figures in the wider academic and industry sectors, including our collaborator Andreas Lange, from the Berlin Computerspiele Museum. There’s even a concert dedicated to the great composers in the history of video game music. Team members, Melanie Swalwell and Helen Stuckey, are also presenting papers on their games historical research. The programme is up, so take a look!
Update: Unfortunately, Huhtamo couldn’t make it, and Melanie Swalwell was invited to keynote. Her full paper is available here.
