‘Factory Girl’ has started a blog about her research: ‘Game Across media: exploring cross media and play’. Here is some info from her blog birth post:
I am a creative individual who got a serious crush for interactive narrative some years ago and another crush, just as serious, for cross media communication around 2004. My background in films and anthropology (and a bit of new media too) unfortunately didn’t allow me to plunge into these for me new topics immediately, so, after abandoning my old fashioned PhD studies in Anthropology of Communications, I had to take some time to “upgrade”.
Through a lot of effort, heavy conference attendance, internet networking and many many readings (ah, those Amazon bills..) I managed to to feel somehow at ease with a topic that in any case until a couple of years ago didn’t feature in university courses.
Waiting to find an enlightened institution to sponsor my studies, I will post here the advancement of my solitary research, hoping that way it will be less solitary.
