Happy new year! I hope you had a restful holiday and are now staying as warm as possible! I wanted to let people know that I plan to continue my reading group this semester, and I already have a book in mind that I’m eager to read–
Ethnography and virtual worlds: A handbook of method by Tom Boellstorf, Bonnie Nardi, Celia Pearce and TL Taylor. If you’re at all familiar with game studies, you know these folks are great researchers, and I was really excited to hear about this project and see it finally released. More information about the book is here.
I’ve sent more information about the group to our gamecode list, but if you’re not a subscriber and are interested in attending the group meetings (usually held every other week for about an hour), feel free to email me at mconsalvo [at] gmail [dot] com.
