AUG 4TH, 2022  |  17:00 – 19:00  |  THE STUDENT HOTEL AMSTERDAM CITY 

CivicIxD researcher, Mirjam Vosmeer was invited to give a lecture on: VR for Diversity – From Damsels in Distress to Gaymers in Control, at Pride University. In this lecture, we will first take a dive into video game history and the ways gender has been represented throughout the years, hopping from Miss PacMan to Lara Croft and from Donkey Kong to Horizon Zero Dawn. After discussing some curious events in the history of queer gaming, the HvA research project VR for Diversity will be introduced. We’ll proudly present the experience Amelia’s Dream on sexism and gender(in)equality and our Virtual Museum Exhibition about LGBTIQ+, created by the students of the Master Digital Design.
