Call for Papers
“gamevironments. games, religion, and stuff”
Papers Due: 31.05.2015

As the journal’s title suggests, researching video games by today is
not limited to the established media-centered approaches. On the
contrary, also the ‘games/gaming’ – ‘environments’ and actor-centered
approaches need to be highlighted. Gamevironments consist of both, the
technical environments of video games/gaming and the cultural
environments of video games/gaming. The journal welcomes contributions
applying all approaches and highlighting all fields of investigation
related to video games/gaming and religion, culture, and society in
the diverse global video game and gaming landscape.

We include different categories of texts in the journal: regular
academic articles, interviews (f.e. with games designers), research
reports, book reviews and games reviews. For more information, please
