Ideas From the Trenches – Dangerous Games

CBC Radio interviewed Anita and Feminist Frequency board member Dr. Jennifer Jenson of York University for their documentary series In the Trenches. The episode, entitled “Dangerous Games,” features an in-depth look at the work of Ph.D candidate Emma Vossen, “who looks to gamer culture as a microcosm of how sexism is seeded and replicated within broader society.”

The interview includes a fascinating discussion about race and gender with Dr. Kishonna Gray, MLK Visiting Scholar in Women & Gender Studies and Comparative Media Studies/Writing at MIT. Dr. Gray is also the founder of the Critical Gaming Lab at Eastern Kentucky University.

Listen here for this excellent and topical discussion!
