People Involved: 

The Critical Gaming Project (CGP) at the University of Washington is a collaborative, interdisciplinary working group and community of players dedicated to the critical study and teaching of games, primarily digital and social games.  The CGP is committed to the idea that video games (and games in general) occupy an important part of our lives and media ecology, that games can be *both* “serious” and “fun,” and that games are necessary objects of inquiry and analysis.  The CGP hopes to foster game research and pedagogy at the university level and to develop productive interactions between departments, disciplines, scholars, players, fandoms, and the general public.
