Congratulations to Dr. Timm Woods, who defended his dissertation on role-playing games: “Anything Can Be Attempted: Table-Top Role Playing Games as Learning and Pedagogy.” He defended on September 5, 2017 with Drs. Granville Ganter (advisor), Shanté Smalls, and Anne Geller. Timm has published on role-playing games, and he currently works exploring the relationship between gaming and education. He has taught writing courses at St. John’s where the students generated essays while playing the role playing game, The Quiet Year. Who knew research could be about fun? Dr. Woods has an essay published in The Role-Playing Society: Essays on the Cultural Influence of RPGs (Duke University Press, 2016) and is currently employed at The Quad Prep and Winston Prep, both in Manhattan.
