Jennifer Whitson

University of Waterloo
prof / researcher / trashy-novel-reader
Waterloo, Canada
Jen's spent the past 10 years studying the game industry and she teaches courses on gamer cultures, surveillance studies, and digital media production. Her ethnographic work on game developers has taken her across the world, from working at Execution Labs, a game studio accelerator in Montreal, to interviewing IndieMEGABOOTH developers at fan conventions like PAX in Seattle, to speaking to artists in Berlin. She's written a bunch of stuff on game developers, surveillance, games, and gamification, including a chapter in MIT's The Gameful World book. She also knows an awful lot about cattle farming. Most of her writing is available at www.jenniferwhitson.com. On twitter she's @jen_whitson.
