Sisters of the Forsaken: An Analysis of Virtual Pacifism and Organizational Discipline

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This analysis explores how discipline functions in the organizational life of a pacifist guild in the game World of Warcraft. This analysis posits the research question: What are the ideologies represented by the guild, and how does their web site represent the organizational discipline of members? An ideological criticism approach is used to explore the tensions between violence and pacifism and the values that members are expected to adopt as part of their organizational identity.
