Thesis title:

The lived experience of gaming in the UK, from 2005 to the present, and its insidious intersection with right-wing ideologies

I am starting a collabarative M4C doctorate with the BGI (The British Games Insistute) and the NVM (The National Videogame Museum). I will be looking at gamer subjectivities within the UK,  a lived experience of gaming and disaggregating the stereotype of the isolated, male gamer. I am interested in the relationship between alt-right ideologies, right wing communities and games and their communities/industry. Conceptually I hope to explore ideas around identity and isolation in gaming.
