New publications online

Our university has officially adopted a parallel publishing policy, and I have already since the 1990s made draft versions/author’s versions of my published articles and book chapters available online in my home pages. I have today made again some updates, making available draft versions e.g. of these publications:

  • Mäyrä, Frans (2011) ”Games in the Mobile Internet: Towards Contextual Play”. In: Garry Crawford & Victoria Gosling & Ben Light (eds.), Online Gaming: Production, Play & Sociality. New York: Routledge.
  • Mäyrä, Frans (2011) “From the demonic tradition to art-evil in digital games: Monstrous pleasures in The Lord of the Rings Online”. In: Tanya Krzywinska, Esther MacCallum-Stewart & Justin Parsler (eds.), Ringbearers: The Lord of the Rings Online as Intertextual Narrative. Manchester University Press.
  • Mäyrä, Frans, Tanja Sihvonen, Janne Paavilainen, Hannamari Saarenpää, Annakaisa Kultima, Timo Nummenmaa, Jussi Kuittinen, Jaakko Stenros, Markus Montola, Jani Kinnunen & Antti Syvänen (2010) ”Monialainen pelitutkimus”. In: Sami Serola (ed.) Ote informaatiosta: johdatus informaatiotutkimukseen ja interaktiiviseen mediaan. Helsinki: BTJ Kustannus. 306-354.
  • Mäyrä, Frans & Lankoski, Petri (2009) “Play in a Hybrid Reality: Alternative Approaches into Game Design”. In: Adriana de Souza e Silva and Daniel Sutko (eds.), Digital Cityscapes: Merging Digital and Urban Playspaces. New York: Peter Lang Publishers.
