I have published a piece of writing in Feminist Media Studies for a special issue on women in sports. My contribution is a thought piece on the pressures of postfeminism and failure on women interested in competing in esports, using Overwatch‘s Geguri as a case study. Geguri is an amazing athlete whose career I have followed with great interest. I enjoyed writing this piece immensely and I hope to both publish on this topic further and incorporate it into my dissertation.
