Imagining LGBTQ History through Games: A Game Design Workshop in Collaboration with the ONE Archives

Abstract:

With 3 million+ items in its collection, ONE Archives at the USC Libraries is home to the world’s largest repository of LGBTQ materials.  ONE’s wealth of historic materials include periodicals, books, film, video and audio recordings, photographs, artworks, business records, personal papers, and ephemera that reveal the complicated and diverse history of LGBTQ experience.  Workshop participants will have the opportunity to work hands-on with a selection of materials from ONE to use as inspiration for game design.
