Hi! My name is Josef Nguyen, and I am a Ph.D. candidate in English at U.C. Davis. In addition to books, I also really like science.
I am a graduate of the University of the Pacific, receiving a B.S. in Computer Science and a B.A. English in 2007. I then attended U.C. Irvine, earning an M.S. in Information and Computer Science with a concentration in Arts Computation Engineering (A.C.E.) in 2009.
My main academic interests include but are not limited to:
- media studies
- cultural constructions of creativity and innovation
- making and maker culture
- cultures of toys and play
- contemporary literature
- speculative, promissory, and futuristic discourses
- videogames and pedagogy
