Research Interests

Gaspard’s primary research interests are located at the intersection of queer and game studies. His work mainly draws upon cultural theory, game studies, gender studies and queer theory. Gaspard approaches games as polysemous texts, which are both sites of contention and critical thinking. He is particularly interested in alternative and ‘deviant’ gaming experiences and has published in Convergence, Game Studies and various gaming encyclopaedias.
