Statement of purpose
DiGRA CEE aims to support and develop the academic debate within game studies and related fields in the region of Central and Eastern Europe. The chapter’s main activity is to organize the annual Central and Eastern European Game Studies conference (CEEGS). By organizing the conference and providing other platforms of communication, the chapter will introduce game scholars working within national academic environments of Central and Eastern Europe to an international community and facilitate regional cooperation transcending national boundaries. An important value of the chapter is openness and affordability for students and academics from all countries of the region. The primary language of the chapter is English.
The chapter is managed by the Chapter Executive Board (CEB). Additionally, there is a Local Organizing Committee (LOC) and a Program Committee (PC) assigned for each installment of the conference.
We understand the region in broad terms, including post-socialist countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans, and also Austria, Germany, Greece, and Cyprus. This geographical designation does not preclude individuals from outside of this area from joining the chapter’s events and communication channels. Participation in the chapter’s events and activities also does not intend to impinge on the ability of any individuals in this area to form or be members of other regional or national DiGRA chapters, such as the German-speaking countries DiGRA chapter or DiGRA Croatia.
