Analog Games and Gender 

Panel for Game Studies Section

PCA 2019

Washington DC

April 17-20,2019

Concepts of gender have been a cornerstone of contemporary discussion in the field of game studies (Hayes 2011; Kafai et al 2008; Shaw 2014; Williams, Ratan, and Harrison 2011) . While much of the research is firmly tied to video games, understandings of gender in analog games has slowly come to the fore. Increased media related to live action role playing games (larp), the unpredicted resurgence of Dungeons & Dragons, and the longevity of collectible card games like Magic The Gathering demonstrate analog games as a durable subsection of game studies that is ripe for academic analysis in terms of gender.

Securing a position as a fulltime tenure track professor is difficult but even more so for people with a disability. Despite an increased call for applicants from marginalized populations, people with a disability are more quickly eliminated as potential candidates for fulltime positions, either through direct discrimination or from ablest conventions of the job interview process.

Opening & Vanishing Cities: Urban Space & Contemporary Fiction (Panel 17466)

Michael Antonucci/ 2019 Northeast Modern Langauge Association Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 15, 2018

Following on the writing of Hannah Arendt, Cathy Caruth’s work on trauma and narrative points to a “new history of disappearance.” This panel seeks to explore that “new history” in the context of the transnational space crafted within rhetorics of the American city in contemporary fiction. Writers like Teju Cole, Don DeLillo, and Leslie Marmon Silko expand on those rhetorics—addressing denial and moments of obsessive return—as flight, escape, and migration define their characters’ imaginative renderings of cities, once boundaries have vanished, limits are reached, the fence lines fail and open range surrounds them.
