Event Details

Topic: The explosion of eSports and how it exemplifies a transitioning society. Video gaming has experienced massive growth in just the last few years, having transcended its niche and broken through to the mainstream. What once was a subculture has surged in popularity and is now a spectator sport on par with any other. In fact, dozens of colleges – including the University of Utah, Miami (Ohio) and UC-Irvine – currently field eSports programs, offering scholarships to “student-athletes” who dream of playing video games for their career.
