DiGRA 2017 features a number of exciting initiatives designed to support diversity within the game studies community, and strengthen supportive community networks. This includes (but is not limited to);

4) Discounted tickets for delegates from low income countries.

We have endeavored to place diversity and inclusivity at the centre of our decision making for DiGRA 2017, and we hope that all delegates will feel welcome and included throughout the conference. In particular, we have put additional effort into the social program at DiGRA to support an inclusive collegial experience for both new and old attendees. However, improving diversity is an ongoing practice, and consequently we are delighted to be hosting a workshop on ‘Gaming the Systems: Towards a More Inclusive DiGRA’, on July 2nd. The CFP for the conference is available at

The DiGRA 2017 planning committee believes that there is excellent research and scholarship happening in the spaces between/outside the traditional submission formats we offer. We also believe there is something valuable to be gained in putting researchers in conversation with developers, journalists, artists, activists, and other people working in games and related disciplines. If you don’t work full-time in the academy but would still like to present at DiGRA 2017, please consider submitting to this track. More details –
