My Research

My thesis is titled "Gender in Immersive Gaming" and is supervised by Prof. Deborah L. Steinberg and Dr Amy Hinterberger.

I completed my field work at the end of summer 2014. My analysis was complete by the new year and I have recently moved into the writing up stage of my project. Through developing an immersive-participatory method, this thesis engages with work on power, agency and subjectivity in order to analyse the affective and embodied relationship between the player and the game world. It specfically interrogates themes of authority, aquisition, and morality.
