The Summer of Reacting II, part of our annual summer conference series, offers faculty around the world opportunities to play a variety of games and experience the Reacting pedagogy online. See more of the Summer of Reacting, and all our events!
THE THRESHOLD OF DEMOCRACY: ATHENS IN 403 BCE
Recommended for all instructors. In this game, the classroom is transformed into Athens in 403 BCE. In the wake of Athenian military defeat and rebellion, advocates of democracy have reopened the Assembly, but stability remains elusive. As members of the Assembly, players must contend with divisive issues like citizenship, elections, re-militarization, and dissent. Foremost among the troublemakers: Socrates.

FUNDED REGISTRATION FOR DEI ADVANCEMENT
The Reacting Consortium is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and belonging. These values inform our work to foster an accessible community, our approach to game development, and our determination to contend with “big ideas.” We have reserved free spots in all of our 2021 workshop and conference programming to advance these values. These spots are for instructors who are members of historically underrepresented and marginalized identity groups, and for those teaching at minority-serving institutions (HBCUs, Tribal colleges and universities, AAPI and Hispanic-serving institutions). If you are interested in applying for one of these spots, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Funded SOR Spot” by July 10. Even if the general spots for this event are sold out, these funded spots may still be available. Please apply and share with colleagues.
