On the 21st June, the Games Research Network hosted its first annual symposium, Multiplatform 2017, in Manchester. We were joined by academics from universities across the UK, and beyond, to discuss research into games and gaming, in both the digital and analogue formats. The symposium began with a Key Note address from Professor Paul Booth, who joined us from DePaul University, Chicago, and included presentations on the lack of research into modern tabletop games, the role of games as a paratext, and a consideration of the ethics of gameplay. All of the presentations are now available to download from figshare, by simply clicking this link.
We would like to thank all of our speakers and attendees, and look forward to welcoming everyone back to Manchester in the Summer of next year for Multiplatform 2018.
