Call for Papers | “Game Studies: Past & Present”, Locus Scholarly Journal Special Issue on Game Studies | Call ends November 30, 2022
About a quarter of a century ago, game studies emerged as a separate academic field. Until then, existing disciplines such as media studies and cultural analysis covered early scholarly research on games. Awareness grew that game studies should be seen as a distinctive field in its own, with specific approaches, methods and discussions. As cultural artifacts, games should be approached differently than conventional media.
Call for Book Proposals | Video Games and the Humanities, a new book series from De Gruyter Oldenbourg
This series seeks to reconnect media-centric Game Studies to the disciplines it had to distance itself from in its foundation, such as literary studies or film studies, in an attempt to use their differences and contact zones in a mutually productive dialogue. In this endeavor, the series is committed to a decidedly global scope as it assembles perspectives from different cultural and academic contexts.
