We are excited to announce a new report on *mobile games and civic
engagement *-- with ties to art games and learning. Check out our
interviews with game designers, profiles of mobile innovations, and
cross-linking essays. The report is published by MIT Press/IJLM, and was
initially funded by Intel.

Do you have comments? We would love to hear your reflections on the
report. Our goal is to start a conversation that looks across cases,
and lightly ties theory from multiple disciplines together. Some
questions for you: What would you *add *to this report? What is the
next step for *research *in this area? Is this *format *a useful way to
reach practitioners and academics? Let us know.
Sincerely (in no particular order), the report co-authors:
Benjamin Stokes, Jeff Watson, Susana Ruiz
University of Southern California, Schools of Cinema and Communication
p.s. -- Here's a teaser from the report: /"This report addresses the
mobile frontier for civic games, which is fragmented across the applied
domains of activism, art and learning. We argue that these three domains
can and should speak jointly --- an approach we call the civic "tripod."
Our site structure is part of its contribution, with a curated database
of projects and interviews from the field."/
