Amy M. Green
Amy M. Green received her Ph.D in Literature from UNLV in 2009. She specialized in Shakespeare and 19th Century American Literature. Today, her work has evolved and she focuses on popular culture studies, especially with regards to literature, film, and video game analyses. She believes that more traditional analyses and interrogations — which are the hallmark of the liberal arts more generally — should also encompass our popular culture. She is especially interested in the expanding presence of video games as a compelling source of narrative, one that is necessarily participatory by nature. She includes whenever possible in her courses the study of digital narrative alongside more traditional forms of storytelling.
She has spoken about the importance of digital narrative in a successful TEDxUNLV talk, in an interview for KNPR’s State of Nevada program, and in a recent University Forum Lecture. She has also published articles focused on the analysis of digital narrative. She is an enthusiastic and engaging speaker and is always interested in sharing her thoughts about video games and their importance in public lectures, keynotes, or smaller round table discussions.
