League of Legends and the Sentimental Education of Esports

This thesis written by a scholar of Georgia State University is a highly detailed 96 page thesis which seeks to “understand the relationship between e-sports and the ideology of neoliberal economics,” by examining the game League of Legends. Obviously this thesis contains way more information than I’ll need in a 2,000 word research paper, however there are a ton of useful details that I could use, as well as numerous citations I can look at to find a more narrowed down view of the subject. I do expect to be citing this thesis in my own paper, if for nothing more than a brief look at the ideologies mentioned throughout then text.
