Beatrix Livesey-Stephens

Beatrix (Bea) Livesey-Stephens is a researcher studying the perception and application of player calibration and consent in analog games, particularly those pertaining to romance and sexuality. Another of her main interests is the intersection of accessibility/disability and play. Bea is the recent recipient of the Optimist Award at the Canadian Game Studies Association Conference for her work on reimaginings of accessibility and calibration in play. She hopes to contribute further to understandings of player calibration, trust, and consent wherever she can.
