Congress Wrap-Up

GameSound was very pleased to be part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences this past week! Our poster (alongside a digital demonstration) was exhibited as part of the Canadian Society for the Digital Humanities (CSDH) conference. It was wonderful to engage with dynamic scholars from across North America about game studies, the digital humanities, and much more.

Weren’t able to make it out to the conference? We’ve uploaded a copy of our poster to the website in PDF format for easy viewing. Feel free to take a look!
