“The Ludic Outlaw: Medievalism, Games, Sport, and Play,” a special issue

updated: 
Thursday, April 16, 2020 - 1:36pm
The Bulletin of the International Association for Robin Hood Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 31, 2020

From the early Atari single-player arcade game Outlaw to more recent videogames such as Activision Blizzard’s multiplayer Overwatch, modern digital outlaws have long been popular characters in gaming culture. These characters often work to resist authoritarianism within their respective gaming worlds, and they frequently evoke much older outlaw representations, such as the Robin Hood of medieval ballads, by embodying popular definitions of justice and communal welfare.

[When this call for abstracts was submitted two months ago, we all lived in a different world.  Recognizing that academic lives have been disrupted as we have adjusted to online teaching as well as other responsibilities at home, I have extended the deadline for abstracts.  I also realize that many scholars have not been able to go to their offices or institution library during this time and consult materials.  If this is your situation and you still want to submit an abstract, please send me an email and I will work with you.]
