A Kindred Academic

Evidently, I’m not the only one who is interested in models and worlds and values. I was referred to Matthew Kirschenbaum‘s essay “Hello Worlds“. This was interesting because he not only references the work of Ian Bogost and Michael Mateas, but he frames the discussion as an application of digital humanities, to think about worlds and as the material content of both literature and games. He also mentions, however briefly, Jane Austen. Austen is inescapable, an inevitable fact underneath everything, a humming constant beneath the universe. All roads lead to Jane Austen. I don’t know whether to be pleased or frightened.
