Laura op de Beke is a PhD fellow at the University of Oslo, Norway. In her doctoral project she looks at Anthropocene temporalities in videogames, which manifest as temporal affects: for instance anxiety over the future, petro-melancholia, a preoccupation with death, failure and extinction, as well as technofuturistic hope.
Laura’s other interests include science fiction, green media studies, veganism, LARP, and the environmental humanities more broadly. She is also the founder and co-convenor of the online environmental humanities reading group un-earthed.
