Critical Game Studies Initiative
The Critical Game Studies Initiative centers humanistic inquiry in the study and teaching of games by cultivating a community of instructors, fostering innovative research, and providing resources, including the Greenlaw Gameroom, UNC’s first game-based classroom. With its attention to rhetoric, literature, and film the Department of English & Comparative Literature serves as a hub for the initiative. This new endeavor leverages the department’s expertise to furnish a critical perspective on games and culture as well as create an environment for exploring alternate play practices that embrace difference.
