In Spring 2023, she is teaching  a themed honors symposium:

Video Game Narratives
B Session (Mar 2 - May 5)
IDH2931-14757 |  Thursdays 2-340pm (1 credit hour)

A good story can feel like it has transported you to another place, but video games go a step further: as players, we are given the unique opportunity to participate in the story's world.

In this symposium, we'll study a variety of narrative-driven video games, from early text adventures to the latest hits and indie favorites, to gain a better understanding of how stories are created and experienced in this medium.

Throughout the course, students will develop new media literacy and analytical skills while exploring the cultural value and impact of video games.
