  • About the Division

  • The study of games and the game experience offers opportunities for the study of human communication, involving 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 Division 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 activities at ICA's annual conference.

  • Want to join our division? We would love to have you! Please email membership@icahdq.org with "The Game Studies Division seems simply amazing, please may I join it?" or similar.

Ruud Jacobs wrote on the Divisions: Game Studies wall: A brief reminder for anyone looking to attend the nice 69th Annual Conference: There has been a change in the policy surrounding the venue hotel rooms for the coming conference. To reduce cancellations and ensure attendees have a better chance of booking a room close to the conference, the rooms blocked for ICA will now only be made available when the conference schedule is announced (instead of when the acceptance letters are sent out). If you want to make use of the locked rates negotiated by ICA, please hold off booking a room until this time.
