DR. JEANETTE BUSHNELL
I am semi-retired Anishinaabe university professor who has played games for six decades.
Academic interests: indigenous philosophies, indigenous pedagogy, social equity, feminisms, hip hop, and gaming.
Gaming background: My gaming interests have followed the technology trajectory beginning in the 1950’s beginning with card games, board games, role-playing, puzzles, neighborhood games such as Kick The Can, and pick-up ball games. Video gaming moved through Pong, Asteroids, Tetris, Zelda, Mario, Carmen Sandiego, Prince of Persia, and Gizmos & Gadgets. I entered the MMORPG world when WoW came out of beta to spend time with my game-playing children. Coming full circle, I now have returned to the old – and some new – card games, board games, puzzles, and a little online Dungeons & Dragons.
