New publication: Playing with Privacy: Games for Education and Communication in the Politics of Online Privacy

Cover image for Vol. 61 Issue 2 
The article based upon the Privacy card game research has just been made available for early online viewing in the journal Political Studies. I'm really pleased to see this published, and I'm looking forward to seeing the printed version.

There's a little bit more information (and some photos) of the game under the 'Privacy Game' header at the top of the page, but this article really goes into depth on the theoretical motivations for getting involved in making a card game, the particular problematic politics of online privacy, the use of games for education and communication, and the results of the fairly extensive evaluation work we did on the game. 

I'm also glad this is in a mainstream politics journal, as I hope it makes the case for more of this time of research in those areas (as well as drawing attention to the politics of online privacy, which sometimes gets overlooked in Political Science). 

It's behind a paywall I'm afraid. I'll try and make a pre-print version available when I can.
