Board Games 2011 Symposium in Brugge

There is still time!  You can register until the end of March.  More information - including the great feature that if you don't want to stay for the entire 4 days, you can buy a 1-day pass! 

Online registration form.

There is a great line-up of presenters and topics this year, including a one-two punch from David Parlette, noted author of many books and articles on games and the history of games/boardgames, and Dr. Irving Finkel, assistant curator at the British Museum, on Day 1:

David Parlett

Back to Square One - a question of of origins
Irving Finkel

On to Square Two – the question of dissemination

Full program

I saw the names of several female presenters - goody!  The early symposia were nearly all male presenters, but over the years more females have submitted papers and signed up to present as the programming has grown in scope.  The Board Games Studies symposia have grown into fine events with presenters from all around the world.  Maybe someday I'll actually be able to attend one!
