Transitions and updates...

very GRADUAL updates.

There's been one gear around here--GO.

In the last few months, I've been in the process of transitioning between three cities including an international move, which I am absolutely thrilled about. While I've been favoring the microblogging medium, here are the best hits while uprooting, initiating, uprooting, initiating, etc:

Just came back from the Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities, this year at the University of Victoria.  Presented at the Canadian Game Studies Association and Canadian Communication Association's annual meeting. Presented work on women's participation in video game communities, on a panel with a stellar international team Chris Paul, Mark Chen, Thorsten Busch, and Kelly Bergstrom where we discussed diverse debates in game studies.  It's been a stimulating week, having just come off the Feminists in Games Workshop held at the Centre for Digital Media in Vancouver.  

Got interviewed by Nora Young from CBC Radio's Spark, on the topic of Big Data and Social Games.  It's about 15 minutes at the beginning of this episode.  Take a listen>>

Getting going in a new position: Assistant Professor of Digital Communication, School of Communication, Loyola University Chicago. Details here>>

This Fall, I'll be teaching 2 courses: 1) Communication and New Media and 2) Game Studies.

More soon, as it happens.

Above: achievement unlocked.  I like the look of this badge.
