Speakers list (spoiler: it’s awesome)

The full list of amazing game devs, indies, and scholars presenting at QGCon in just a few weeks (Saturday and Sunday, October 26th and 27th, in Berkeley’s South Hall) is now up — and damn is it a party of awesome. We are so happy to be bringing you this formidable selection of voices from across the industry and academia. See their bios here.

These 36 speakers will be offering up an array of talks, panels, and workshops on all things queerness and games. Sessions run from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. A full schedule with abstracts and bios will be up shortly. Remember to register so we know to expect your shining face. We can’t wait to see you there!
