Congratulations to Dr. Jon Saklofske on the publication of his co-edited book Feminist Wargames?  Mechanisms of War, Feminist Values, and Interventional Games (January 2020) published by Routledge.  

Inspired by and dedicated to Dr. Rachel Brickner (Acadia’s Department of Politics), this collected volume of essays explores the critical intersections and collisions between feminist values and playable representations of war. By asking whether feminist values can be asserted as interventional approaches to the design, play, and analysis of games that focus on armed conflict and economies of violence, Feminist War Games? addresses the persistence and brutality of war, while also considering the place and purpose of video games in our cultural moment.   For more details click here.
