CALL FOR PAPERS for panel entitled, "Gaming our Future? Time-Politics-Security in a Virtual World"
INTERNATIONAL STUDIES ASSOCIATION ANNUAL CONFERENCE, New York, USA, February 15th through the 18th of 2009
The space that digital games occupy in many people's lives has grown exponentially. Research on the socio-political ramifications of digital games has not, however, and is only now beginning to catch up. This panel seeks to redress the theoretical gap between this world and a growing number of virtual worlds and welcomes therefore papers that explore the relationship between digital games and questions of time, politics/political agency, and security using insights gained from the Social Sciences as well as the Humanities.
If you would be interested in presenting a paper, please send us an abstract of no more than 500 words by Friday, May 23. Do not forget to include a title for your abstract, your name, your affiliation, and your contact information.
