Seeing paper proposals for a panel entitled "(De)Colonizing Digital Gamespaces: Games, Gender, and (De)Colonial Praxis" at the NWSA 2016 Meeting in Montreal, Canada Nov. 10-12, 2016. Proposals due to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 Feb. 2016.
Digital spaces are frequently referred to as a "new frontier," discourse which explicitly links digital media and colonial praxis. Similarly, digital games are encoded by deeply colonial—and imperial—ideologies which marginalize and often victimize women and people of color. Although the games industry has, in recent years, begun to be more inclusive of women and people of color in roles other than that of victim, most digital games and gaming spaces remain colonized.
