June 1, 2013—The Fembot Collective is delighted to announce the second issue of Ada: A Journal of Gender, New Media, and Technology! This issue, “Feminist Game Studies,” is edited by Nina Huntemann (Suffolk University) and features articles by Audrey Anable (University of Toronto), Kishonna L. Gray (Eastern Kentucky University), and Alex Layne & Samantha Blackmon (Purdue University), Adrienne Shaw (Temple University), John Vanderhoef (University of California Santa Barbara), and Jordon Youngblood (University of Florida). The articles cover a range of current intersections in game studies and gender and technology. We invite you to read the articles at http://adanewmedia.org/.
We have adapted the Ada review system to enable the broadest and richest conversations possible. As part of our open peer review process, comments on this issue are now open. Our next issue on Feminist Science Fiction, edited by Alexis Lothian (Indiana University of Pennsylvania), will launch in November 2013.
Many thanks to the Fembot Advisory Board, University of Oregon Libraries, the UO Center for the Study of Women in Society, and the UO School of Journalism and Communication for their support of Ada.
