We are very sorry to announce that the Pop! Goes the Culture: Why We Game? event that was to be held on February 20 has been canceled due to low registration rates. Hopefully we will soon have a new, more accessible chance to come together to discuss elements of popular culture.
In the meanwhile, you might want to have a look at the National Public Speaking Competition 2014 page: the competition itself is on March 1 and fast approaching, so come back soon for updates and news.
