The ASA Board of Trustees in October 2019 approved a grant of $7,000 in support of the Workshop on the Philosophy of Games at the University of Central Oklahoma. Although it was originally hoped that the meeting could be held in April 2020, the meeting will be held virtually October 24-25, 2020. The Workshop is organized by Christopher Bartel (Appalachian State University) and Mark Silcox (University of Central Oklahoma).

The Workshop, which builds on work at the ASA-funded Workshop on the Philosophy of Games at Utah State University in 2016, aims to ensure that the philosophical study of aesthetics is central to the North American game studies community.

Papers have been selected, following a call for proposals. The schedule for the virtual conference will be announced shortly.

The organizers aim to bring together a diverse range of scholars from fields like Philosophy, Psychology, Media Studies, Communication Studies, Computer Science, and Literary Studies all focused on the aesthetics of games.
