Title: The spaces of the videogame
Authors: Wade, Alex
Issue Date: 2008
Publisher: © Alex Wade
Abstract: With their significant impact upon economic, social and political spheres, videogames are a crucial site of sociological research.

Placing Lefebvre's The Production of Space (1991/1974) as its cornerstone, this thesis examines how Lefebvre's conceptual typology of space can be used as a tool of analysis, arguing that the experiences of postindustrial society is [sic] concurrent to experiences of space transient and in flux.
