We’ve added six new pages to this blog, centred on the central strands of the Women in Games 2007 conference: the Performance of Play, Non-Games, Other Players, Situated Play/ers and The Big Game. At the moment the content is sparse, but in time you’ll be able to click on the links here or at the top of the page to find out more about each and to surf the abstracts and event descriptions which fall into each category.
