The new online journal gamevironments,,highlighting video gaming as related to religion, culture, and society, invites paper submissions for its first upcoming regular issue. Gamevironments is hosted at the University of Bremen, Germany, as an international and multidisciplinary collaboration effort by the University of Bremen in Germany and the University of Helsinki in Finland.

As the journal’s title suggests, researching video games by today is not limited to the established media-centered approaches. On the contrary, also the ‘games/gaming’ – ‘environments’ and actor-centered approaches need to be highlighted. Gamevironments consist of both, the technical environments of video games/gaming and the cultural environments of video games/gaming. The journal welcomes contributions applying all approaches and highlighting all fields of investigation related to video games/gaming and religion, culture, and society in the diverse global video game and gaming landscape..

We include different categories of texts in the journal: regular academic articles, interviews (f.e. with games designers), research reports, book reviews and games reviews. For more information, please see
