Digital Encounters is a cross media study of digital moving images in animation, cinema, games, and installation art.In a world increasingly marked by proliferating technologies, the way we encounter and understand these story-worlds, game spaces and art works reveals aspects of the ways in which we organize and decode the vast amount of visual material we are bombarded with each day.



Self-Representation and Digital Culture   by Nancy Thumim
Palgrave Macmillan, 2012

Taking a close look at ordinary people 'telling their own story', Nancy Thumim explores self-representations in contemporary digital culture in settings as diverse as reality TV, online storytelling, and oral histories displayed in museums. This highly original research examines how contradictory and widely different politics inform and shape examples of 'speaking for oneself'.
