Local organising committee

The local organising committee are all staff and PhD students at Birmingham City University. These are the people who will be on the ground during the event, so keep an eye out and feel free to direct any questions during the event to them!

As part of the Birmingham Centre for Media and Cultural Research (BCMCR) we have a Game Cultures cluster, and all of our local committee are members of this cluster. The Game Cultures cluster brings together scholars whose research addresses questions around the cultural aspects of games of all kinds (both physical and digital). We understand the study of games as a field in which disciplines intersect, and we bring together approaches from history, sociology, English studies, film and television studies, and media studies to address the place of games, and their production, circulation and consumption, in culture. You can see a variety of Game Cultures members’ work here.
