From Aerith to Zelda: Preserving the History of Women in Video Games

Please join us for a discussion with Shannon Symonds, Curator for Electronic Games and Co-chair of the Women in Games initiative. 

Shannon Symonds is Curator for Electronic Games and Co-chair of the Women in Games initiative at The Strong museum, home to the International Center for the History of Electronic Games and the World Video Game Hall of Fame. She will be discussing the museum’s game collection and what it takes to collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit more than 60,000 objects related to the history of the gaming industry. Special emphasis will be placed on the museum’s growing collection of items related to the contributions women have made to electronic games, and the vital role it serves to video game scholars and historians.
