Next March, there will be a conference in Brisbane, titled Video Games: Violence and Beyond which is being presented by Griffith University.
The details are as follows:
Date: March 3 and 4, 2015
Presented by: The Violence Research and Prevention Program, Griffith University
Venue: The Royal on the Park Hotel, Brisbane
Content: Adopting a multidisciplinary approach to the question of violence and video games, this two-day conference program considers the impact of video games from a range of perspectives.
The program will explore the following themes :
- research evidence for and against the role of violent games in fostering aggressive attitudes and behaviours and violent crime
- the appeal and pervasiveness of games
- the role of games in everyday life
- ways in which games are approached and used in a variety of contexts
Foregrounding thorny questions about education or regulation, with a line up of internationally and nationally recognised researchers, this conference will offer a rich array of information and viewpoints on the hotly debated issues.
Hope to see you there.
