From the publiser's website:
For many years, larpers with academic experience have studied larp through academic lenses – be they students of sociology, history or anthropology. ”Think Larp” is a collection of ten academic papers all looking at larp from the outside – from a historian looking at the Danish larp scene and its evolution from subculture to mainstream phenomenon to a MA in pedagogy's thoughts on larp and gender roles. The book was created as part of the Knudepunkt 2011 conference and is part of the long-standing Knudepunkt tradition of looking at larp with analytical glasses – in this case academic ones.
”Think Larp” is not an easy read, and those looking for hands-on tips on how to play will not find those here. Academics looking at larp, larpers with a liking for academic analysis and researchers in the field, however, will find this a truly spectacular piece of work. All articles have been double-blind peer reviewed by post-docs in their relevant fields, and enough cademic accolades have been heaped on ”Think Larp” to ensure its position at the forefront of larp academia.
In other words: if you have an academic interest in larp, this book is for you.
