    Sammanfattning : Previous research finds roleplaying games, as well as the wider spectrum of geek culture thatthey exist within, to be defined by discourses favoring a white, heterosexual, cis-maleviewpoint, drawing up and reproducing stereotypes and tropes that are inherently misogynist,homophobic, and racist.

    Sammanfattning : Through an examination of the businesses and people that support war-making, collectively known as the defense and security industry, this thesis reveals the controlling processes at work that make the business of war palatable to those who work within the industry.
