Professor Patrick Jagoda
University of Chicago
Fellowship awarded 2014
UT Austin Host: Department of American Studies
Professor Jagoda’s research focuses on the ways that novels, films, television series, and digital media aestheticize networks, as metaphors and material systems, in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. His other work explores experimental videogames, transmedia storytelling, and the nature of play in contemporary American life. Alongside his traditional scholarship, Jagoda collaborates on a number of practice-based research projects from board games to alternate reality games about social and emotional health.
