Timothy Welsh

Timothy Welsh received a Ph.D. in English from the University of Washington in 2011. His research and teaching interests cluster around the intersection of modern literary and artistic practice and digital media studies. His current book project, Mixed Realism: A Theory of Fiction for a Wired Culture, compares print novels and console videogames to present an approach to narrative fiction that responds to the expanded role of virtual environments in contemporary life. For more information on Dr. Welsh's projects and courses, please visit his online portfolio and blog.
