International Academy for the Study of Gaming and Religion

Interested in the Critical studies of Video Gaming and Values? The International Academy for the Study of Gaming and Religion (IASGAR) aims at bringing together people working in the field, at providing space for exchange, and at advancing scholarly research on the interrelation of video gaming and values. We understand “video games” to be electronic forms of play across all platforms, from personal computers and consoles to mobile devices. The network is an international and multidisciplinary forum for ongoing discussion and cooperation. IASGAR’s aim, among other things, is to collect, systematize, and develop the various recent multidisciplinary approaches to research and teaching and to contribute to structure and coordinate them as well as the discipline specific discourses. We want to discuss the new emerging questions related to methodological and theoretical issues and approaches in the study of games/gaming and values.
