Hi all,

Please join us for two upcoming events (online or in-person) hosted the
University of Waterloo Games Institute:

1. On Wednesday April 19 at 1PM EDT/UTC-4 Dr. Andre Brock will give a
lecture: T*he Changing Same: Blackness, Representation, and Video Games*. The
talk is a discussion of the promise and peril of POC video game character
voice acting, focusing primarily on the connections of Black male anger and
Black fatherhood in God of War through the voice work of TC Carson and
Christopher Judge, contextualized against the audio Brownface of two voice
POC women characters in Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves. Please register with
(for free) to receive the link to the online event.

2. On Tuesday April 25 at 1 PM EDT/UTC-4 Dr. Kishonna Gray, Dr. Liz Nilsen,
and Dr. Rhona Hanning will discuss *Just Relationships for Research*. We
are increasingly asked to envision and implement respectful and
non-extractive research involving marginalized communities. But we are
rarely challenged to bring those principles to bear in our own research
groups, where asymmetries of institutional power between colleagues,
students, and staff are normalized. This interdisciplinary panel will
outline roles and responsibilities as well as best practices for graduate
student supervision to frame a discussion of how to foster and maintain
just relationships among researchers, with a focus on the principles and
practices animating non-extractive student-supervisor relationships.
Different panelist will share their knowledge of institutional guidelines
for student supervision and/or experience with cultivating and leading
non-oppressive research groups. The panelists will encourage conversations
about what constitutes just research relationships within and across
disciplinary and institutional contexts. Please register with Eventbrite
(for free) to receive the link to the online event.
