• About

    THATCamp IMMERSe is an unconference hosted by the University of Waterloo Games Institute, in partnership with the IMMERSe Research Network for Video Game Immersion, and inspired by THATCamp Games. THATCamp IMMERSe was founded as a way to bring together theorists and practitioners of game studies and the digital humanities, game developers and designers, games enthusiasts and advocates, and humanities instructors and scholars interested in games, pedagogy, and player experience. THATCamp IMMERSe serves as a space for those from all sides of the field to engage in challenging and meaningful conversation in hopes of learning from one another.

    We invite games scholars, students, developers, designers, and enthusiasts interested in the confluence of games and the digital humanities to join us for a weekend this July to discuss, debate, create, and play.
