Sybille Lammes (Associate Professor)

In recent years my main research interests have been related to new media, digital culture and play. My research programme in computer games examines how games can function as cultural spaces for new spatial and postcolonial practices. In my latest ERC funded research project Charting the Digital I look at how and to what extent digital mapping has altered meanings of media and cartography in daily life.

Research Profile

Digital mapping; actor network theory; digital play; digital methodologies.
