Salvete! I'm so glad to be here! For the past few years I've been working at the strange interstices of classics and video games (see my blog
for all the bizarre details). I've recently started, with scholars in several other disciplines, the Video Games and Human Values Initiative (see here
In the immediate future--January, that is--I'll be leading an asynchronous online course, entitled "Living Epic: the power of video games in culture from the ancient to the modern world." This course carries 1.5 CEU's for Connecticut teachers, and 15 contact hours that can be applied to teaching portfolios across the country. It's intended for teachers--especially teachers of classics--and parents, and represents the next step in VGHVI's attempt to start a new kind of conversation about the constructive potential of video games in culture in general and in education in particular. Please see here
for all the details, and please don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions about the course, the initiative, or my work.
Thanks very much for your attention to what must seem a carpetbagging sort of post, though in truth the need to carpetbag is pushing me to find places in which I should have been involved long ago!
