I am Hong-An (Ann) Wu, a community-based educator, new media artist, and interdisciplinary researcher that works with/in/around/through games and play. I received my Ph.D. in art education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2017, and I am currently serving as an Assistant Professor in the School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication at the University of Texas at Dallas. In my dissertation, I examined the potential of transforming systems and structures with youth through prosumer development and critical play in community-based settings. My research interests include: critical game & play studies, feminist pedagogy & technology, games & learning, and new media arts education.
