Video Games and the Global South, ETC Press at

Dr. Phillip Penix-Tadsen. Video Games and the Global South (ETC Press at
Carnegie Mellon University, 2019). This new edited anthology aims to
redefine games and game culture, from
south to north. While video games are
a quintessentially global technology,
with game consumption, production
and related practices taking place in
virtually every country in the world
today, players in different regions
have received, created and even played
video games differently, because
cultural and national context impact
the circulation and meaning of games
in countless ways. Many geographical
locales once considered part of the
high-tech "periphery" are in fact
home to longstanding and widespread
technocultures with their own unique
characteristics. This is readily evident
in the contributions to this anthology,
which examine the cultural impact of
video games in regions including Africa,
the Middle East, Central and South
America, the Indian subcontinent,
Oceania and Asia.
Video Games and the Global South came
together through a series of panels and
workshops Dr. Penix-Tadsen organized
for conferences including Society for
Film and Media Studies in Chicago;
Latin American Studies Association in
Lima, Peru and Digital Games Research
Association in Melbourne, Australia.
Its eighteen chapters from thirty
contributing scholars bring together
perspectives from a range of disciplines,
critical methodologies and theoretical
approaches. Together, the anthology's contributors offer a clear view of how
global technologies become locally
situated, helping redefine how we look
at games and game culture, from south

De La Celestina a la Farsa de la Costanza: La auto-modelación como lugar común (From La
Celestina to Farsa de la Costanza:
Self-fashioning as Commonplace).
Madrid: Verbum Press, 2019. This book
examines Stephen Greenblatt's concept
of self-fashioning in Fernando de Rojas
Tragicomedy of Calisto and Melibea
and Cristóbal de Castillejo's recently
discovered Farsa de la Costanza. Dr.
Rio connects self-fashioning with the studies of performance and grotesque
realism in order to explore how identity
formation influenced the works of Rojas
and Castillejo. Themes studied include:
the establishment of the Inquisition
on the lives of converts, the role played
by Rojas' Jewish ancestry in his social
self-configuration, and Castillejo's
court life and identity as a monk. Dr.
Rio argues that the concomitances
between La Celestina and La Farsa de
la Costanza constitute fundamental
elements that enable the examination of
the various social and historical aspects
of these works through the prism of self-
fashioning, performance, and grotesque
