International Communication Association Game Studies Special Interest Group
Welcome to the official site of the ICA Game Studies SIG.
The study of games and the game experience offers opportunities for the study of human communication that involve multidisciplinary approaches that merge the disciplines of conventional communication studies and research, arts and visual design, cognitive studies, computer sciences, cultural studies, engineering social sciences, health sciences, and information design.
Although the common ground for the Game Studies Special Interest Group is digital and video games, the group encompasses a broad range of inquiry topics and methods. The group serves as fertile meeting ground for the exchange of ideas among a very broad spectrum of disciplines and hosts a number of activites at the ICA's annual conference.
We welcome members from a broad range of disciplinary perspectives who are interested in scholarship and research related to games and communication.
To become a member of the Special Interest Group, you must first be a member of the International Communication Association, our parent organization.
This site was created by Jieun Shin for the Game Studies Special Interest Group and is maintained by the Interest Group's Officers.
