         Subject: new issue on computer games and ethics

Dear Humanists,

I'm pleased to announce the publication of a new special issue: please pass
this on to interested colleagues.

The latest Issue of the International Review of Information Ethics focuses
on E-Games. Guest Editors Elizabeth Buchanan and Charles Ess have compiled
an issue that builds up a collection of philosophically and empirically
robust articles and is now available free of charge at www.i-r-i-e.net.

E-games command our attention, in part as they have inspired moral
  panics among worried parents and politicians, who are concerned (and in some
measure, with good reason) with e-games built around violence (including
sexual violence) and bloodshed. But e-games are of compelling interest as
the ethical questions they evoke are far more complex than simple "good /
bad" dualities in the popular press would suggest. They represent some of
the most sophisticated utilizations of the potentials of computing and
network technologies -- and both their stand-alone and online versions
implicate a complex array of ethical questions that include issues of
individual and community responsibilities, cross-cultural interactions,
etc., alongside central philosophical questions concerning reality and its
construction in human experience, human nature and play, and, ultimately,
the nature of the good life, both individually and in community.

About the Guest Editors:

Elizabeth A. Buchanan is Associate Professor and Co-Director, Center for
Information Policy Research, School of Information Studies, University of
Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Elizabeth's research focuses on information ethics,
research methods and research ethics in general, and Internet research
ethics in particular. She is the editor of Readings in Virtual Research
Ethics: Issues and Controversies (2003) as well as numerous publications,
and is currently Chair of the Association of Internet Researchers Ethics
Working Group.

Charles Ess is Distinguished Research Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies
and Professor of Philosophy and Religion, Drury University, Springfield,
Missouri, USA; he is further affiliated (as a Professor II) with the
Programme for Applied Ethics, Norwegian University of Science and Technology
(NTNU), Trondheim, Norway, and teaches this year as an Erasmus Mundus
scholar at NTNU and University of Linkoping, Sweden. He has served as a
Senior Fulbright Scholar (University of Trier, Germany) and Guest Professor
at the IT-University of Denmark. His recent publications include editing a
special issue of Ethics and Information Technology devoted to conceptions of
privacy and data privacy protection in Asia, and (with co-editor Fay
Sudweeks) a special issue of the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication
on Culture and CMC.

About the Journal:

The International Review of Information Ethics is the official journal of
the International Center for Information Ethics (ICIE). It envisions an
international as well as intercultural discussion focusing on the ethical
impacts of information technology on human practices and thinking, social
interaction, other areas of science and research and the society itself.

The journal seeks to be a general forum for ethical scholarship in this
area. It seeks to publish the best available scientific works concerned
twice a year in an online edition.

The International Review of Information Ethics is available free of charge
