CIBRG (Corporeal Intersubjective Battlefield for the Resistance of Gamers), a SSHRC (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council) funded project from the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Concordia University, aims to understand the subjective experience of male and female players in the use of avatars in the context of League of Legends (LoL) (Riot Games, Inc.). The project explores how LoL provides benchmarks from which players can have a significant gendered experience and intimate interactions.
