This Tuesday, I will presenting some of the findings and arguments of my PhD dissertation, called Games of Stake: Control, Agency and Ownership in World of Warcraft, at Broodje Kennis, an ongoing series of "lunch lectures" organised by the University of Amsterdam's cultural center Spui 25.

PhD Dissertation online

It has been for a while, but I completely forgot to mention it on my blog: my PhD dissertation is available for download at the University of Amsterdam's Digital Academic Repository. Called Games of Stake: Control, Agency and Ownership in World of Warcraft, the research deals with the ongoing negotiations between players, and between players and the game's developer Blizzard, which shape and, I argue, define the socio-cultural phenomenen of World of Warcraft.
