mediaX at Stanford


I am eagerly anticipating my June 6, 2017 talk at mediaX, as part of the “Games and Interactive Media Seminar Series” at Stanford University. I’ll be speaking on my new book, which will be out soon. My lecture is called “On The Visual Politics of Video Games” and it introduces some key themes of my book.  Thanks to Henry Lowood and Ingmar Riedel-Kruse for this invitation!

Flashback to “High Art / Low Life”


My first published academic essay, and also my first essay on games, remains in demand, so wanted to make it available here. I wrote it when I was a graduate student. I’m eternally grateful to the editor of PAJ: A Journal of Performance and Art, Bonnie Marranca, for publishing my work on games first!
