I just received grades for my semester 1 papers:
Cybergames: The Extensions of Posthumans
This piece dealt with Marshall McLuhan’s extension thesis, N. Katherine Hayles ideas about cyborgs and posthumans, and Bruno Latour’s work on Actor Network Theory, in relation to video games.
The Semiotics of WarioWare: Touched!
Mostly Barthian style semiotics, with some ANT and methodological reflexivity bolted on at the end.
