Dr Seth Giddings

About me

I am a media theorist, artist and ethologist. I teach the theory and practice of everyday and experimental digital media, on BA Media Culture & Practice, with a particular interest in videogames and play culture.

Area of expertise

My research interests are broadly concerned with technology and culture, focussing on everyday, popular media technoculture. I have written extensively on computer and videogames as new media forms and as everyday playful events, and have developed innovative methods for studying intimate and playful engagements with technology. I am currently working on a Nesta Digital R&D funded project to design and test a mobile phone based game to encourage dance, and I am completing a book for Bloomsbury called Gameworlds: virtual media & children's everday play. I am a member of the Digital Cultures Research Centre and my research blog is microethology.net.
