Digital games are the primary focus of this TWG. We invite contributions
from technological, aesthetical, social, political and cultural
perspectives. This temporary working group accepts both panel proposals
and abstracts for individual papers. We therefore also invite
contributions where games intersect with other media types and
technological practice.

Digital games have increasingly become a central part of contemporary
culture and society both on a global scale and with a focus on the
Nordic countries. More people in the Nordics play games than not.
Digital games are among the foremost cultural commodities exported from
the Nordics and we are hosting gaming events of global reach. Esports
and streaming are central elements of youth culture. Issues such as
problematic gaming and violent content in games are debated in
mainstream media, and phenomena such as loot boxes and skin betting has
led to discussions of regulating games on a policy level.

For this conference we are especially interested in work that
investigates various gaming practices (including practices related to
games, play and media), for example competitive play, streaming,
modding, playful media practices of production and consumption, game
production as communication or creativity etc.

This working group accepts full papers, long abstracts, panel
presentations and workshops. You will find the instructions for
submissions of abstracts for all these forms of presentation here.
Discussants will be appointed to papers and long abstracts, but the
division also assumes that all participants will read each other’s
papers in order for the discussion to be more informed.
