Proposal: What Would We Do with a UC Game Lab?

What is a game lab and, well, what would we at UC do with one?

This session concerns the foundation of a UC Game Lab in conjunction with the new Film & Media Studies B.A. in A&S and the Game Art Design certificate in DAAP. Given that the Game Studies discipline has been growing by leaps and bounds since the mid-1990s, it is time that UC join the scholarly and institutional conversation.

Note that the topic does not concern if we had a game lab – those processes are already in motion.
Instead, it concerns what we would do with one, including research projects, teaching and learning opportunities, and lessons in the ephemerality of the digital archive.
