Gen Con Partners with Temple University’s Digital Scholarship Center
Gen Con has announced a new and very interesting partnership with Temple University’s Digital Scholarship Center which will work on the creation of an online database of events for all 50 years of the Gen Con gaming convention.
The database will be available for public use with an accompanying exhibit site for articles. With this event information, researchers can apply digital scholarship techniques, including textual and network analysis, to learn how gaming has changed as reflected through Gen Con.
The project is expected to “go live” July 2017.
