Before the Crash: Early Video Game History (Contemporary Approaches to Film and Media Series)

Too low to display

How are researchers and scholars going to make use of born-digital primary sources? It’s an open question which many working in digital preservation are interested in. As part of the NDSA innovation working group’s ongoing I am excited to talk with Zach Whalen, an english professor at the University of Mary Washington, about a project he developed that works off a digital collection (of sorts) to explore this topic.

ZACH WHALEN is an Assistant Professor in the English, Linguistics and Communication Department of the University of Mary Washington. He recently completed his PhD at the University of Florida, and his collection, co-edited with Laurie N. Taylor, _Playing the Past: History and Nostalgia in Videogames_ has recently been published by the Vanderbilt University Press. He has published several journal articles and book chapters on videogames and new media studies and is currently completing a book on videogame typography.
