Dear all, as part of BDiGRA’s remit to encourage new voices in Games Studies, we are offering a series of ‘Paper Paramedic’ sessions at this year’s BDiGRA conference (14th – 15th June, Staffordshire University, UK). If your paper was rejected, or if you simply did not submit a paper because you lacked confidence, or if you want advice on a paper that’s ‘almost but not quite’ there, BDiGRA will be running sessions to address this. The sessions are sign up in advance, and you will also need to send us a copy of your work when you apply.
On the first day, our mentors will work with you to give advice on your paper, including ways to improve your writing, ways to make your paper align to the various requirements needed to submit a conference paper, and will work with any feedback you’ve already had on your work. On the second day of the conference, we will run a series of abstract sessions similar to those taking part in the main conference, where you will present your work in a short session, and then discuss feedback / your work with the rest of the conference in an informal context (no powerpoint presentation required!).
If you are interested in taking part in this, please submit your work to email@example.com. Spaces are limited, so please get in touch if you want to take part. Note we are not taking research proposals for these sessions – the work must be something specifically intended for a conference presentation or publication. Early scholars will take precedence in our selection process (we will also take into account the mentors we have available and their subject areas within Games Studies).
Please mail britishdigra at gmail dot com if you are interested in applying.
