Hey, wasn’t this WIG?

 

Yes, this group was previously known as Women in Gaming. However, it came to our attention this was not inclusive to the entirety of the Smith community, and did not represent our goal to create a space for all marginalized groups to explore gaming, not just women. After bouncing around a few ideas (we were almost EGG!) we ended up going for the Gaming Archives Project, or GAP. We aim to create a platform for those typically without a voice to write about their experiences with video games, and to bridge the gap in the gaming industry and culture. The goal and heart of this group hasn’t changed, just the name.

This group is for anyone with an interest in a range of possibilities in the world of gaming, from researching certain topics within games, such as the typical portrayal of women, to more about women in the gaming industry.
Join us in the KnowledgeLab every other Friday for playthrough events, and during Joce’s gaming hours on Tuesday/Thursday 12-2 and Friday 1-3 to check out our collection of games.
Games we have purchased for the Knowledge Lab include:

We would love to hear more suggestions or ideas about what this group could entail. If at all interested, please join us at our next meeting or contact Tammy Lockett with questions at tlockett@smith.edu. For more information, visit our website at https://sophia.smith.edu/gaming-archives-project/
