Great stuff on Gaming and Gender

Gender and Gaming has long been the focus for many researchers across many disciplines. Getting to that research has always been somewhat of an arduous task. Carrie Heeter and Brian Winn of Michigan State's Department of Telecommunication, Information Studies, and Media took it upon themselves to create a gateway to much of that research. Their creation was Investigaming. The site currently maintains 410 citations, 319 abstracts, and 217 full text artictles all on gender, gaming and computing. The collection includes both academic and industry research from 1982 to present and can be searched through keywords or tag clouds. It is a fine resource for both scholars of gaming and/or gender or students who are interested in exploring the intersections of gender and gaming.
