Laine Nooney, Ph.D.
I am a professional researcher of computers and video games. I bring historical, theoretical and feminist methods to the study of media objects and practices, with a special focus on everyday users and obsolete technology.
Currently, I'm a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Intel Science and Technology Center for Social Computing in the Department of Media, Culture and Communication at New York University.
I'll be speaking on Gamergate and the history of the term "gamer" at the HUMlab at Umea University in Sweden, November 25.
NYC locals can join me at the School for Poetic Computation on December 3, for my talk on "How the Computer Became Personal."
