Loading Player Two uncovers the hidden history of girls in gaming. Originally a WordPress blog, we’ve moved to a platform that helps us monitor and manage content better (including copyrights).
To view the articles in their new homes, please visit my HubPages profile here.
I was inspired by my 2015 exhibition, Gamer Girl for Girl Museum. There were so many stories that I couldn’t include — artifacts, articles, and biographies that demonstrated how girls have been a part of gaming culture all along. And these stories are often left out of traditional gaming histories. Loading Player Two was born.
I’m Tiffany Isselhardt – a lifelong gamer and trained historian. I hold a Masters degree in Public History, and have been researching and writing for most of my life. I’ve curated many historical projects — including exhibitions, published articles, and conference presentations — which can be viewed on my website.
I specialize in museum interpretation, exhibitions, and administration. I volunteer with Girl Museum as Program Developer, leading exhibitions, strategic planning, social media management, and collaborative partnerships and our interns. I also produce their podcast series, GirlSpeak.
I’m a self-proclaimed Geek Gamer Princess who loves all things Disney, food, gaming, travel, theme parks, and fun. I can often be found lost in Skyrim or Stardew Valley (sometimes literally lost) or whatever game is currently tickling me pink, reading A LOT, or exploring the world at large.
