"We will continue to define ourselves and our concerns on our own
terms", thus concludes Oyeronke Oyewumi's thought provoking introduction

Call for Papers: Playing with Mother Nature: Video Games, Space, and
Ecology

Editors Sidney I. Dobrin, Cathlena Martin, and Laurie Taylor seek
proposals for a new collection of original articles that address the use
and place of space and ecology in video games. This collection will
examine video games in terms of the spaces they create and use, the
metaphors of space on which they rely, and the ecologies that they create
within those spaces. This collection will address the significant
intersections in terms of how and why video games construct space and
ecology as they do, and in terms of how those constructions shape
conceptions of both space and ecology.
