Healing in Virtual Worlds - A College Anthropology Research Paper
I wrote this paper in my last year of college before graduating. The course was something along the lines of an anthropology class about healing rituals in cultures.
I originally was going to write about using games for healing, but I was deep in virtual world theory at the time, so I ended writing about healing in the context of the culture of the virtual world. Specifically, this is about Final Fantasy XIV, but it covers the general theory. For motivation, I streamed writing this on Twitch. Viewer count was not high, but it worked, I wrote the thing.
