To break the silence, here’s the call for submissions for Games and Culture. The first issue of the journal, which came out in January 2006, can be viewed through a free trial membership. The next issue is due out in April. The journal discusses:
Games and Culture’s scope will include the socio-cultural, political, and economic dimensions of gaming from a wide variety of perspectives, including textual analysis, political economy, cultural studies, ethnography, critical race studies, gender studies, media studies, public policy, international relations, and communication studies. Other possible arenas include:
* Issues of gaming culture related to race, class, gender, and sexuality
* Issues of game development
* Textual and cultural analysis of games as artifacts
* Issues of political economy and public policy in both US and international arenas
Right up our ally, eh?
