I’m happy to announce that I’ve just sent off my acceptance of an admission offer to the art history/theory/criticism PhD program at UCSD. I’ll be moving to San Diego at the end of the summer.
It’s a little early to be completely sure of what my program will look like, but my primary interests will probably remain in the study of videogames as texts and cultural artifacts, on transnational cultural flows in new media, and on borders, migration, and hybridism in/after globalization. Not only is San Diego a great place to study – with resources like the Pacific Rim Institute, the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts, and the Center for Iberian and Latin American Studies, the whole SoCal area is just brimming with possibilities.
Before then, I’m heading to E3 – there should be a small contingent of Ludonauts there.
