Thanks to UCSC’s Computational Media…

…for a wonderful visit! On 1 February 2021, I was pleased to share some of my forthcoming writing on video games, aesthetics and political affect with UCSC’s Computational Media PhD students and faculty. Special thanks to Samantha Conde for hosting.

From this essay, forthcoming in the European Journal of American Studies:

Days Gone becomes useful not as a literal political perspective, but as an object of concentrated political intensity of feeling.”
