NEW Super Gamer Podcast 79 – Beyond the Realms of the Academy with Javon Goard

Our guest this week is a video game researcher and poet, a podcast host, and a Kung Lao enthusiast. Javon “Jaystonee” Goard is the creator of an award-winning project titled “Gaming the Gamers: Gender and Racial Portrayals in Trailers of Popular Video Games.” He’s a former graduate student who continues to research, write, and talk about video games and video game culture. On the show, we discuss why Javon left his graduate studies, why he will continue his work independent of school, his research on the experiences of Black people in the fighting game community (while being a member of that community, himself), economic barriers to esports participation, and more. Tune in!
