Regina & Rhonda
DC Public Library presents a 10-day series titled “Orwellian America?” about government transparency and personal privacy in the digital age. January 21 begins with a live reading of George Orwell’s “1984.”
THOMPSON: Carter. Gonna be a little busy with your friend Stark. If you don’t mind, these surveillance reports need to be filed, and you’re really so much better at that kind of thing.
CARTER: What kind of thing is that, Agent Thompson? The alphabet? I can teach you. Let’s start with words beginning with ‘A.’

Regina is a gamer, writer, teacher, and podcaster living in the Pacific Northwest. She completed her Ph.D. in 2011 from Washington State University in Vancouver and continues to teach there part time. Regina’s research interests focus on women and technology, and her dissertation discusses female gamers and identity in digital role playing games. A lifelong geek and technology enthusiast, Regina recently started a Girls Who Code club in support of their mission to close the gender gap in technology.
To continue the conversations about gender and gaming that Regina started during her research, she started a podcast called Game on Girl. Called the “NPR of game podcasts” by Chris Brown of The Married Gamers, the podcast features women involved in the game industry, and tackles some of the complicated issues in the gaming community. Season 2 began in the spring of 2018 and will premiere new episodes monthly.
