This Friday, Dartmouth is proud to welcome alumni in the gaming industry back to Hanover!
Dartmouth has a special relationship to game design. Familiar with the games Twister or Cranium? Some of the most respected games and toys of the 20th and 21st century have been created by Dartmouth graduates. What’s more, there are alumni in leadership roles among scores of prominent toy and digital game companies (Hasbro, Sony, Popcap, Zynga), as well as the entrepreneurial alums who are venturing out to start their own new brands.
Dartmouth at Play celebrates these graduates, bringing folks active in the gaming industry back to campus in order to discuss the future of play.
We’ll discuss the practicalities of working in these fast-moving fields and get a chance to theorize about what is coming. Dartmouth at Play will instigate a lively conversation about games and play, sharing insights with students, faculty, and staff.
See you Friday afternoon to kick off a playful Green Key Weekend!
This is a catered event. Sponsored by The Digital Humanities. Hosted by Dr. Mary Flanagan, Sherman Fairchild Distinguished Professor in the Emerging Field of Digital Humanities.
