ABOUT CGP

The CGP is a collaborative, interdisciplinary working group and community of players at UW dedicated to the critical study and teaching of games.  We are committed to the idea that games occupy an important part of the contemporary media ecology, and that they are necessary objects of analysis. We hope to foster game research and pedagogy in universities and develop productive interactions between disciplines, scholars, players, and general public.

To accomplish these objectives, the CGP maintains this website, networks with like-minded programs and projects at other universities and institutions, develops original courses and focus groups on games at UW, promotes and publicizes gaming events on campus and beyond, and provides an intellectual and avocational space for scholars, teachers, and players to share their work and their interests.

PEOPLE

Membership and participation in the CGP is ad hoc.  The current organizing committee consists primarily of graduate students at the University of Washington, but anyone affiliated with the UW community may “join” the CGP and attend events.
