Children, gender, video games: towards a relational approach to multimedia

Walkerdine, Valerie 2007. Children, gender, video games: towards a relational approach to multimedia. Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan.

Full text not available from this repository.


How do children play video games? Do games make children violent? How does gender figure in game play? These questions often concern parents and professionals alike. Valerie Walkerdine offers an innovative and original way of approaching the study of children and multimedia, using new developments in social theory to challenge existing ways of thinking about our relationship to machines. She places gender issues centre stage and argues for a new way of thinking in media, cultural studies and the social sciences.
