What I Did on My Summer “Vacation”: The Strong Research Fellowship

The new academic year is starting, and so I’m looking back on my summer. I was grateful to receive a Strong Research Fellowship to study in the extensive video game archives of The Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, NY. I was conducting primary research for my book about the history of video games, focusing on The Strong’s collections related to women and people of color as game designers, as well as on documentation related to the creative conceptualization process of video and electronic game design. 

Thanks to The Strong for giving me this opportunity to join a list of past recipients of this fellowship: http://www.museumofplay.org/research-publications/research-fellowships/past-fellowship-recipients. They were great hosts and the collections are inspiring and impressive. I encourage others to consider applying!
