Academia

In this section, you can find an overview of my academic interests and links to the works that I have written that I find particularly interesting or noteworthy. Although this blog is mainly an outlet for creativity and film and video game criticism, I have decided to also give my academic voice an opportunity to come through here. For more, check out my Academia.edu page.

My main interests include…

  • adaptation studies and medium-specific narrative possibilities
    • literature
    • film
    • video games
  • transmedia storytelling
  • character studies
    • villain studies

 Having majored in literary studies and theatre and media studies for my Bachelor’s degree, I combined these two tracks in the field of adaptation studies, with a focus on the rather unexplored area of villain characters. I am working on including video games in my theories as well, and for this reason I am currently working on analysing villains in video games specifically. During my Master’s studies, I started to depart a little bit from adaptation studies once I encountered the notion of transmedia storytelling. My Bachelor programme did not, at that point, require a formal Bachelor thesis, but rather an independent research project (IRP) or an Honour Thesis, which you can find below.
