Video games, social inequality final focus of Humanities Symposia

Trine University’s Humanities Symposia will wrap up its final week of talks with a discussion on video games and social inequality at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 8, in Wells Theater, Taylor Hall.

Alexis DeLancey-Christiansen, an English and communication major at Trine University, will present on how video games and the way they affect people's understanding of the world have become a subject of scholarship.  DeLancey-Christiansen will also explore how video games are uniquely suited to tackle the issue of social and economic class.

The free talks, scheduled each Tuesday through Nov. 8, are open to everyone. Trine students get CHAT credit for attending.
