[ecrea] New Release! - Special Issue 7 (2015) of "online - Heidelberg Journal of Religions on the Internet"

Sun Feb 01 11:08:37 GMT 2015

We are pleased to announce the release of the new special issue of

      "Religion in Digital Games Reloaded. Immersion into the Field"

of /online - Heidelberg Journal of Religions on the Internet/!

The research of religion(s) in digital games is still brand new.
Therefore, all researchers immersing themselves into this fascinating
field are pioneers of sorts. Luckily, more and more research is being
done, works are being published, conferences are being held, and
journals are being launched, altogether slowly but surely adding to the
consolidation of the research field in the contexts of serious academia.
Therefore, we are very proud to present the second special issue of
online – Heidelberg Journal of Religions on the Internet on the topic of
“Religion in Digital Games Reloaded. Immersion into the Field”.

While the first special issue
(which was launched nearly exactly one year ago) was dedicated to reveal
the huge range of possible methodical and theoretical approaches to the
new field (not all of which are necessarily compatible with the basic
self-conception of cultural studies as academic discipline), the current
issue’s focus is on the interconnectivities and interplays of
game-immanent content with actor-centered receptions and responses – the
implications and consequences of which are being discussed in the papers
which are included in this edition.

BTW: The journal is always keen to collect high quality scholarship on
issues relating to religions on the Internet and welcomes submissions
pertaining to all aspects of theses matters anytime to be published in
one of our next issues.

Submissions and queries should be send to the following address:

Best regards on behalf of the editors
