The circulation, commodification, and repression of discourses on genders and sexualities within and among Asian countries has been a constant feature of regimes of modernization, from colonial through neocolonial and postcolonial periods. Aptly enough, it is mainly through the modern vehicle of cinema where these discourses play out. Kritika Kultura will be initiating a forum on the filmic representations of issues on genders and sexualities in the Southeast Asian region, in line with its commitment to the pursuit and development of cultural and media studies, slated for the journal’s February 2021 issue.

Videogames are a powerful storytelling medium—but what are the stories we tell about videogames, with videogames, around videogames?
While there is an extensive body of scholarship on the way that videogames create worlds, construct characters, and explore themes, there has been almost no scholarship on the representation of videogames in literary texts.
