Connections Conference Slides

This past week I traveled to Washington D.C. to attend the Connections conference, held at the National Defense University and focused on bringing together the professional wargaming community with hobby designers and academics interested in using games for their research/teaching.  I presented on how board games and history can form more meaningful 'knowledge handoffs' (thanks Katie King for this wonderful term) between the varied methodological and epistemological spheres games and history separately inhabit.  Below is a copy of the slides I used in my presentation, so feel free to peruse their contents or even download them for your future reference.
