Research interests

Dr Donna Leishman (6amhoover.com) is a media artist and researcher; her work is a combination of critical writing and practice-led research in digital art. Her research career began in 1999, and has seen her cross disciplines such as electronic literature, ludology (the study of games), digital media and more recently human computer interaction, sociology and psychology. She investigates a variety of subjects such as social and literary identity, immersion and interactivity. Research themes include contemporary human activity within digital media: exploring how digitally mediated narratives extend authorship, reception and presence, what role media technologies have in forming or disturbing social identity and ultimately what art and design practices can offer to current debates and societal challenges.
