Four S&T students in the English and technical communication department presented their research at the annual Midwest Modern Language Association conference on Nov. 17 in Kansas City, Missouri. Their panel, “Engaging, Consuming, and Co-Creating: The Stakes of Traditional Narrative Relationships in Digital Games,” was so well-received by the conference screening committee that the students were invited to present at the regular session, rather than at the undergraduate forum. Dr. Daniel Reardon, associate professor of English, served as the panel organizer and chair.

The students and their presentation titles are:

  • Brandon Broughton presented “Subverting Tropes through Self-Referentiality: Cultural Criticism in Doki-Doki Literature Club.”
  • Neal Kisor presented “You Lose, You Die, You Win: Iceberg Theory and Metanarrative Structure in Dark Souls.”
  • Hannah Ramsey-Standage presented “All-New, Yet Again: League of Legends as a Living Documents Collective.”
  • William Reardon presented “Who’s the Author, Here? Modding and the Problem of Narrative in The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim.”
