#Archaeogaming101 #ANTH498 @EdmontonExpo

#Archaeogaming101 is to be a panel presentation Sunday, September 23rd (today!) from 13:45-14:30 in Rm 101 as a part of the Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo at the Edmonton Expo Centre in Edmonton, Alberta!

For ease of access each slide has been posted here, sans PowerPoint notes (because most of them can be found here). That said when this was presented at Animethon I had a co-panelist, CJ, who influenced both the direction and scripting of this version of the presentation. As I’m being graded for this version, however, I’ve paraphrased and edited his input to be read as more natural to my own voice and included him as a reference in my bibliography.

I’d love to know what people thought of this presentation! Check out my feedback survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SG7ND57
