Children, Gender, Video Games: Towards a Relational Approach to Multimedia
The book explores a number of debates about young children and multimedia, with particular reference to video games. It places issues of gender centrally in relation to game play and develops a relational approach to game play using an account of affect. The book places games in a global context and argues that we should not think of the economic relations as somehow remote from what happens in the micro relations of playing. It moves towards a relational approach to subjectivity and explores central issues of violence and parental regulation.
