Editors’ Choice: Assassins Creed Week

Welcome to Assassin’s Creed Week presented by Play the Past, where for a whole week, Play the Past will push content on the most popular historical video game series ever. Part I introduced the Week and asked why Assassin’s Creed mattered, Part II examined slavery and native relations in the series, Part III explored the portrayal of historical women, and Part IV looked at the notion of Grand Narratives and how Assassin’s Creed uses them when making their story. Part V of Assassin’s Creed Week will focus on what it means when the games are wrong.

This content was selected for Digital Humanities Now by Editor-in-Chief Amanda Morton based on nominations by Editors-at-Large: Ester Rincon Calero, Beth Secrist, Erin Bush, Amy Wickner, Amy Williams, Megan Blair, Dale Russell, Aisha Clarke, and Sarah Canfield Fuller.
