“It’s all fun and games until…” When Gaming Controversies Get Real

 

Please join us on Wednesday April 15th for a panel discussion on video games, online controversies, and #gamergate. In light of the heated online battles following last summer's #gamergate incident, this panel will explore why gaming controversies arise, how they play out online, and their repercussions when they spill over into real life. 

CMF's Dawn Johnston and Lisa Stowe were featured in CBC News Calgary - Food and The City for their work in creating the Communal Table Project, which was inspired by the success of their Food Culture course and subsequent Study Abroad Program.
