The first annual Oregon Games Studies Conference, somewhat of a spiritual sequel to the previous year’s Games Considered Conference, was a free daylong event on the University of Oregon campus, held by UO’s Think.Play student group.
The event took place in Allen Hall 148, and ran from 10am to 8pm on February 28th, 2015. The event consisted of five organized panels with speakers from in and around campus, as well as grad student presentations from two local grad students.
OGSC 2015 was ran on zero budget and completely volunteer work basis. All people behind the scenes were the members of the board for UO’s Think.Play student group, and full-time students (Dante Douglas, Blake Brown, Ana Lind, Rebecca Tobe, and Tessa Freeland).
As a steering committee member of UOTP, my job mainly revolved around contacting speakers and developers, and handling publicity. I typed up a Transparency Report for the event that is available by request (just shoot me an email!)
