Congratulations are in order for our very own Tim Summers who has recently completed his doctorate at the University of Bristol. His thesis was entitled ‘Video Game Music: History, Form and Genre.’ Tim has subsequently taken up a College Lectureship at St. Catherine’s College, Oxford.
In order to gain insight into the views and needs of researchers working with/on digital games, three research organizations (DiGRA, ECREA and ICA) have joined hands to organize an international survey assessing the State of Digital Games Research.
Are you conducting or have you conducted research with or on digital games, then please take time to fill out the survey which should not take more than 10-15 minutes and which can be found here: https://ghentunipss.eu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_6icrOwCGauS0Xkx.
We will be holding a conference at Easter and are in the process of finalising details, which will be officially announced here next week. To mark the occasion, and to whet the appetite of any newcomers, we include a copy of the RMA Newsletter Report of our 2012 Study Day below.
The abstracts from the April Study Day (Ludomusicology: Game Music Research Approaches and Aesthetics) are now available to read here.
