I am excited to announce my new affiliation as a Biträdande Professor in Media Arts, Aesthetics, and Narration at the University of Skövde. After nearly ten years working within digital culture at Blekinge Tekniska Högskola, it was certainly time for a change. I have found a new platform to extend my interests in emerging digital culture and media forms by focusing more precisely on computer game development and innovation, and the related artistic and expressive means by which they engage our material culture. To that end I have joined the School of Informatics and the Media, Technology and Culture Research Group (MTEC). I will be teaching within undergraduate and graduate courses focused on game narratives, image analysis, digital aesthetics, and media theory and production. My main focus in the immediate future will be on digital cultural heritage and the ways in which game technologies, tactile media, and strategies of playful engagement and storytelling can enhance user experience.
