I am a DPhil Researcher and member of the Centre for Material Digital Culture.
MA Digital Media University of Sussex
Member of THE CENTRE FOR MATERIAL DIGITAL CULTURE AND DIGITAL HUMANITIES (CMDC/DH) based at the University of Sussex.
Previously, I have been involved in the staging of a number of conferences, including:
The Tablet Symposium
I am investigating the cultural impact of the emergence of the e-book, with a project called 'The impact of the virtual book on readers, reading and the book'. How do they change how we use and view books, do they retain their sense of value for us, do we have the same sense of pleasure (or otherwise) when we read? Also, the e book offers up lots of opportunities, from seamless revisions and speed of distributions, to the options provided by open source formats like epub. What economic or political issues are raised by the use of proprietary systems and consolidation in the publishing industry.
My other research interests are in video gaming and web enabled media. In 2009, I investigated the development of downloadable video games and the impact this change is having on the sense of professional value of the developers involved. This formed the basis of my MA disertation, 'Where does the disc go? What is the impact of the end of the videopgame as a physical object'.
I am currently acting as an Associate Tutor on Digital Environments and Questioning the Media. My office period is Thursday 2 - 4PM, in room Silverstone 307.
