CfP: Utopia on the Tabletop

Edited by SHL’s Jo Lindsay Walton, Utopia on the Tabletop will explore tabletop roleplaying games (TTRPGs) in their intersections with utopianism. While often considered conspicuously “analog,” in distinction from their digital RPG cousins, TTRPGs actually have a much more complex relationship with the digital, shaped by gaming platforms and gaming social media such as Roll 20, Twitch,, and Discord, and encompassing a diverse array of digital project management, performance, and creativity tools. How might the utopianism of storytelling and play intersect with the utopianism of these (post-) digital affordances? Abstracts due 1 February: full CfP available here.
