Include Me; Exclude Me: Diversity, Learning, and Games Post-#GamerGate
Cody Reimer, Alex Layne, Samantha Blackmon

This panel discusses the ways exclusivity, a lack of diversity, and ethical problems impact the world of games and education, including our conceptions of play. Panelists discuss theorycrafting, League of Legends, #GamerGate, Game Studies Curriculum, and Posthuman theory in an attempt to examine both how we as scholars and educations set the tone for the future of Game Studies and how to encourage the themes of diversity, ethics, and inclusivity as central components of what it means to study games.
