The Reacting to the Past program at UGA is hosting its annual conference March 25-27.
Attendees will play an abbreviated version of a Reacting game. This year’s games include “Charles Darwin, the Copley Medal and the Rise of Naturalism, 1861-64” and “Beware the Ides of March.” The latter has been created by Keith Dix of the classics department.
Reacting consists of elaborate games, set in a specific time and place. Students play sustained roles in a structured four-week game, speaking and writing in character on issues of the day.
