In my intro I mentioned briefly that I am looking for more references for two classes that I am proposing to teach next year. Now this is the post.
So, I am proposing to teach two classes on videogames, one for the summer semester and the other one for the fall. The one for the summer will be an intro class on global videogame culture and the one for the fall will be on videogame and gender. So far I have collected some resources such as Nina Huntemann and Ben Aslinger's edited collection, Gaming Globally and Larissa Hjorth's work for the global videogame culture class and Justine Cassell and Henry Jenkins' From Barbie to Mortal Kombat and Yasmin Kafai, et. al.'s Beyond Barbie and Mortal Kombat, as well as some articles from Ada journal's issue on feminist game studies.
I am reaching out to the HASTAC scholar community to see if you know other useful resources to be added to my proposed syllabi. I should also mention that I am trying to balance between popular and academic resources since this will be intro classes. So feel free to point me to any popular accounts related to these two classes.
Lastly, if any of you had experience in teaching similar type of classes, I would love to hear about how you taught your class and perhaps peep into your syllabi.
Thanks in advance!
