My name is Erica Holan Lucci. I'm currently a PhD in Education candidate at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ campus. My dissertation research focuses on the intersection of teacher-gamer identity and pedagogical practice.
I'd like to submit a panel proposal for the 2015 Equity by Design Conference being held from June 11-13, 2015 in Los Angeles, CA. Proposal deadline is December 1, 2014. More information about the proposals can be found here: http://dml2015.dmlhub.net/call-for-proposals/
If you're currently studying any form of gaming research, particularly in regards to identity, and feel that we'd be able to collaborate to develop a strong panel presentation for this conference, please do not hesitate to reach out to me (either in the comments section below, or via DM through my HASTAC profile). Panels are limited to 4 participants. I'd be one of the 4, so I'm looking for 3 more scholars to present with me. I'm more than happy to submit the proposal on the group's behalf!
I think this is an awesome opportunity to collaborate on a variety of research topics applicable to videogames, gaming, gamers, identity, pedagogy, etc. Feel free to share your ideas as you see fit!
