The editors at Ant, Spider, Bee recently asked me to pen something about the place of video games in the growing digital environmental humanities, and I’m happy to report that these thoughts are now online. The post is, perhaps surprisingly for those who know my work, strongly inflected by the latest hullabaloo over video game violence following the Sandy Hook shootings in December, as well as Rob Nixon’s rumination on the ecologically disenfranchised in Slow Violence and the Environmentalism of the Poor.

Please head on over and let me know what you think!
