I’ve been so busy reading up on everything for my first essay, which is meant to examine the theoretical approach to my thesis.
So far, have a page of notes that I hope ends up happily translating to 2000 words. The main thrust of my essay is to highlight the failings of the Narratology vs Ludology divide, presenting the concept of identity performance and specifically Performativity as devloped by Judith Butler (springboarded from Foucault’s notion of discourse) as a viable alternative to both.
I’m so busy scouring every possible source and trying to distill it into something workable that I’m just not able to produce anything here as often as I’d like. Expect more at the end of this week 🙂
