Workshop CfP: Social Justice Tactics in Today’s LudoMix DiGRA 2019

The DiGRA Diversity Working Group is running our second Diversity Workshop at this year’s Kyoto conference. Along with our current work on appointing Diversity Ombudspersons this will be an important part of our work for the year and we particularly encourage participation by scholars from diverse backgrounds. The theme this year is oriented to tactical interventions that have helped support diversifying spaces and organisations.
