2016 Conference Season Presentations

In watching six of my students present at the recent Canadian Game Studies meeting I was proud and amazed at the quality of their work. There was something about seeing it all lined up that really drove home to me how hard we have all worked on this research. Three topics were covered in this symposium, nightmare protection, gaming with the oculus rift and contemplative practice and gaming. The slides from a symposium entitled “Night Time Dreams and Video Game Play” which was presented at the Canadian Game Studies Meeting in early June of 2016 at the University of Calgary, are available on my website, Spiritwatch.ca. The slides are from a symposium entitled “Night Time Dreams and Video Game Play” which was presented at the Canadian Game Studies Meeting in early June of 2016 at the University of Calgary. Three of these presentations were also presented at the International Association for the Study of Dreams meeting in late June of 2016 in the Netherlands. The presentations at IASD were by Dylan Wijeyaratnam, Akshya Boopalan and Elisa White, and Jayne Gackenbach and Craig Guthrie. The last was also presented at the 2016 meeting of a Science of Consciousness in Tucson, AZ in April of 2016. Here is a picture of the participants during the discussion period at the Canadian Game Studies meeting.
