Dear All,

We have a wonderful beginning here. Perhaps I can pull out a few issues that are already at play. Maybe we can start by returning to Jen's question:
Do you perceive the analysis of representation in games (which of course has a history) is a somewhat/sometimes maligned pursuit in Video Game Studies right now? If so, what do we make of this resistance?

And I would add: in what ways do you perceive this to be constitutively different than the past?
