The Mouse and the Myth: Sacred Art and Secular Ritual of Disneyland

Dorene Koehler

The Mouse and the Myth: Sacred Art and Secular Ritual of Disneyland by Dorene KoehlerRituals mark significant moments in our lives-perhaps none more significant than moments of lightheartedness, joy, and play. The rituals that bond humanity create our most transcendent experiences and meaningful memories. Rituals of play are among the most sacred of any of the rites in which humanity may engage. Although we may fail to recognize rituals of play, they are always present in culture, providing a kind of psychological release for their participants, child and adult alike. Ritual is central to storytelling. Story and practice are symbiotic. Their relationship reflects the vitality...

Alternate Reality Games and the Cusp of Digital Gameplay

Antero Garcia

Alternate Reality Games and the Cusp of Digital Gameplay by Antero GarciaAlternate Reality Games (ARGs) challenge what players understand as "real.Â?? Alternate Reality Games and the Cusp of Digital Gameplay is the first collection to explore and define the possibilities of ARGs. Though prominent examples have existed for more than two decades, only recently have ARGs come to the prominence as a unique and highly visible digital game genre.

Jonathan P. Eburne

The Year's Work in Nerds, Wonks, and Neocons by Jonathan P. EburneWhat happens when math nerds, band and theater geeks, goths, sci-fi fanatics, Young Republican debate poindexters, techies, Trekkies, D&D players, wallflowers, bookworms, and RPG players grow up? And what can they tell us about the life of the mind in the contemporary United States? With #GamerGate in the national news, shows like The Big Bang Theory on ever-increasing numbers of screens, and Peter Orzsag and Paul Ryan on magazine covers, it is clear that nerds, policy wonks, and neoconservatives play a major role in today's popular culture in America.

Blood Plagues and Endless Raids: A Hundred Million Lives in the World of Warcraft

Anthony R. Palumbi

Blood Plagues and Endless Raids: A Hundred Million Lives in the World of Warcraft by Anthony R. PalumbiIn 2005, the video game World of Warcraft struck the cultural landscape with tidal force. One hundred million people have played WoW in the twelve years since.

But those people did more than play. They worked, they fought, they triumphed, they held entire game servers hostage, they even married each other in real life. They developed new identities, swapping their workaday selves for warriors, mages, assassins, and healers. They built communities and rose to lead them. WoW was the world's first mass virtualization: before Facebook or Twitter, millions of people established online identities and...

What the Trump?! A Sane Person's Guide to Surviving in the Age of Trump

What the Trump?! A Sane Person's Guide to Surviving in the Age of Trump by Steven S. StevensThere is no getting away from it - the undisputed king of the comb-over Donald J. Trump is the 45th President of the USA. Love him? Step away from this book immediately. Loathe him? Read on.

We shall over-comb. Written and illustrated by the team that brought...
