WoW Student Ethnographies


Is the general population of WoW sexist or gender-biased? Are there way more fanboys than fangirls playing the game?

If your answer was: "Who cares?" Then you may want to skip this post. Otherwise, check out this group of student blogs from a class called "Games for the Web: Ethnography of Massively Multiplayer On-line Games." [Side note: why didn't they offer courses like this when I was going through?] The blogs don't just cover sexism, as each blog details a different student's progress in a research project and paper examining ethnographies in World of Warcraft. Pretty cool stuff.
