In her work at the Engagement Lab has she has designed games that challenge ideas implicit bias in collaborative labor, as well as tensions between individual gain and team building. Her most recent game, Room at the Top, is a multiplayer card game that challenges assumptions about how we collaborate in creative environments. She serves on the board of directors of the Society of Cinema and Media Studies, the board of Console-ing Passions, the editorial advisory board of Velvet Light Trap, and on the advisory board of the Motion Picture Oral History Digital Archive, a collaboration between the Academy of Motion Pictures and over twelve creative guilds and craft unions.
On Wednesday night, we are excited to start a new COMM & Media Week tradition, the Dr. Bill Huie Best Picture screening at the Corpus Christi Alamo Drafthouse!
This year's pic is DUNKIRK, which was nominated for eight Academy awards including Best Picture, and took home Oscars for Film Editing, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing. Dunkirk is a film that absolutely needs to be seen in a theatre. Don't miss this chance to see Dunkirk on a big screen with an excellent sound system!
