Game Studies Division

Game Studies Division logo

The Game Studies (GS) Division promotes the scholarly examination of all aspects of gaming in relation to contemporary communication and culture. Although the division's core focus is digital games, its membership comprises a broad spectrum of related research topics and methodologies. GS supports the synthesis of social, psychological, cultural, aesthetic, ludic, narrative, philosophical, practical, logical, technological, and industrial dimensions of games and gaming. The division's mission is to foster this study through communication lenses, to provide a forum for presenting and discussing this work, and to catalyze collaboration among games scholars within NCA and beyond.
