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.

The focus of the symposium is to acknowledge and discuss, but also, to move beyond the understanding of animation as ‘a cartoon’ and the assumption that sport is merely ‘live’ or ‘as broadcast’ and to properly evaluate and critique sport’s representational visualization in graphic and materially based, design-led, moving image media.
