This is really cool, honestly been waiting for exactly this sort of volume (even as I feel personally inadequate to attempt contributing to it, maybe will figure out something)

We're also soliciting interviews, so if you don't have an idea for a chapter you want to work on but want to be involved, consider those! The pieces are short.

Does this include online games & utilitarian signaling to other players/ games as a facsimile of social connection to reduce suicide risk from loneliness during social distancing, or only single player games?

This collection is a study of the field of game studies itself, so it isn't really for studies of games or games-associated behaviors. It's a study of how we study and why. For what you discuss, you might check the recent discussion on Gamesnetwork of places to publish!

How speculative or provocative are we talking? I've got a paper on play in/with Renaissance esoteric multimedia texts (which I think sooooort of anticipate video games) that might be a fit.

I'm excited to read that, but what we're looking at here is not games themselves but the study of games. So, if you were studying the people writing about the esoteric multimedia texts YES.

I'm intrigued by the 4th general format. I went from writing articles for game sites to scholarly articles and books, and turned it into an undergrad Intro to Game Studies course. I'm now working on a graduate oral history course based on the work I've done. Is that relevant?

Possibly. It would need to engage critically with field formation and position.

I've been looking to write a piece on South American philosopher Maria Lugones, her theory of playfulness and what it could offer games studies. This gives me motivation!
