Où passe le genre ? Les jeux vidéo au prisme des théories féministes du cinéma

Abstract : Gender is one of the major keys to the intelligibility of video game practices. It remains to be seen how precisely gender demands are made in the activity, not only in the representations implemented by these cultural objects that are games, but also in the play, the logic of desires and the construction of game experiences. We propose to elaborate this topical question, drawing on the corpus of feminist theories of cinema, in particular the texts that seek to describe the experience of the spectator. An examination of the debates that run through feminist cinema theories makes it possible to identify at least three ways of approaching the operation of gender: at the level of representation systems, at the level of the cinematographic system itself, at the level of the different spectatorial situations and "ways of seeing". We will consider each of these layers of analysis successively, questioning the results that can be transposed into the neighbouring field of video game studies.
