Book Chapter: Kim Kardashian: Hollywood and Feminism
In M. Payne & N. Huntemann (eds.) How to Play Video Games. New York: NYU Press.
Abstract: Kim Kardashian has received much attention for her media empire, including her game, published by Glu Mobile. The game’s premise plays a role in what I characterize as “Feminine Play Style,” an emerging mode of video games that functions through assumptions about an idealized vision of the woman player and her relationship with leisure time.
