University of Saskatchewan student research on racial diversity in games generates media interest

Cale Passmore, a SWaGUR PhD student in the University of Saskatchewan Human Computer Interaction Lab, delivered 2 media interviews last week.  His research on racial diversity in games and the effect of under representation on gamers of colour garnered the attention of CBC radio and The College Fix.  Both interviews can be found here.
