The purpose of the Council for Play and Game Studies (CPGS) is to help composition teachers and researchers network their research and pedagogical interests in using games to teach rhetoric and writing. CPGS also hosts Cs the Day, an interactive scavenger hunt at CCCC.
CPGS currently has two officer positions open for the 2020-21 year, and we’d love for you to join us!
Below are descriptions for the open positions. If you are interested in either, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, the position(s) you are interested in, your home institution, as well as a paragraph describing why you are interested in the position and why you believe you would be a good fit for it.
Please email your self-nominations by Friday, October 2nd. We will hold elections for the new positions soon after.
