Connected Communities

Description

Explosive Ordnance Disposal Tech Mary Dague deals with past trauma and concurrent anxiety around her husband’s deployment, while also navigating a world built for able-bodied people. As a double amputee from injuries sustained in Iraq, video games provide an opportunity to be a part of an inclusive and supportive community, while also helping others. Mary and her husband James guide us into the world of online communities and the roles they serve in connecting us in both escape and critical support.
