Storytelling & video games

Steve Wilcox.

uWaterloo student shares the story of games studies

Steve Wilcox, a uWaterloo PhD student, wants you to know the importance of video games. He’s sharing the story of Professor Neil Randall’s work with Interactive and Multi-Modal Experience Research Syndicate (IMMERSe) in the games studies field, and it’s earned him a spot as one of the top five storytellers in the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s (SSHRC) Research for a Better Life: The Storytellers.

The SSHRC challenged post-secondary students to show Canadians the importance of social sciences and humanities, and as one of the final five Steve will be able to share his story at the 2013 World Social Science Forum in Montreal this month.

Steve is also the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the online games studies publication First Person Scholar – and we can’t wait to see where else his passion for games studies will take him.

You can watch his submission below, or read more about Steve’s success on the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council website.
