Reviews

This eye-opening collection of essays serves to remind readers of the power and potential of games as a catalyst for change... Woke Gaming seeks to push readers to recognise persistent inequalities, as well as those who struggle for change within both our virtual worlds and in our everyday communities.

-- (01/01/2018)

Gray and Leonard have assembled a courageous chorus of voices that challenge an industry emblematic of some of the most insidiously oppressive structures in American society... A must-read for scholars and students in fandom studies, popular culture and media studies, critical and cultural studies, communication, and sociology... Highly recommended.
