Notes

Abstract: I utilize feminist media scholar Elizabeth Grosz's extensive vocabulary on bodies to reconstitute how bodies are perceived and created in modern triple-A videogame production. Using her work, I push back on industry-standard tropes of hyper-masculinity and anti-feminism and develop the first steps towards a fuller heuristic for critically analysing the subjectivizing elements of vidoegames.
