Video games are among the most popular and profitable parts of our culture and economy. They are also somewhat new as a subject of academic inquiry. In this podcast we interviewed CCT’s Garrison LeMasters, who is interested in understanding the ways in which texts are discussed in the academy, and especially the ways video games are studied. We had a fascinating conversation that opened up a lot of interesting avenues for changing the conventional wisdom surrounding video games.
