October 13, 2022Been quite busy these past few weeks, so I'd like to take a moment to shout out some of the folx I've been working with.
First, I would like to thank Dr. Josef Nguyen and Dr. Hong-An Wu for inviting me to speak on the Studio for Mediating Play's Emerging Scholars Panel at UT Dallas. I would also like to thank Christine Tran of the University of Toronto and Christopher Persaud for their insightful presentations on practices of care in public and private spaces online.
Next, I would like to thank my fellow panelists from "Fandom on Lockdown" at this year's Fan Studies Network-North America conference: Emily Coccia of the University of Michigan, Pilar Lacasa of the University of Alcalá, Spain, and a special thanks to our co-panelist and moderator Melody McMullan of Toronto Metropolitan University.
It was a pleasure to talk to you all, and I hope that our paths may cross once again soon!
August 22, 2022I start teaching Game Studies I this week! Here's to the start of a new year.
June 27, 2022I've added a link to my panel's recording on the CV page. If you're interested in the ol' "Magic Circle" chat, take a look!
Thanks to my co-panelists Atanur Andiç and Jack Murray!
June 26, 2022What a lovely conference! I look forward to listening to all the panels I missed in the weeks to come.
I suppose I'll be getting back to my dissertation work in the meantime.
June 16, 2022I'll be presenting at Console-ing Passions 2022!
Virtually, anyway. My panel of peers are scattered all around, so it's easier on us all to pop in. Ah, the connecting power of the Internet.
I look forward to meeting all sorts of new folx!
June 14, 2022I blinked and... I'm done?

One of the original ideas I had for this website was to host a "screed" describing why my website is "unprofessional": why it's got a "fun" tab, why it's on Neocities and not, say, Squarespace, etc.
As I thought about it, I decided that it was a bit more rant-like than I wanted. Not only that, I was going to end up reusing some of that information for my bio, so it seemed a bit silly to retread myself.
I'm therefore removing the page. Perhaps I'll come back to it and post it in the Library.

After a number of false starts, this website is now operational.
I hope to get everything together soon.
