Anne Stewart is currently an undergrad in Literature at UO, working on
a minor in Japanese with a focus on culture. Her areas of interest for
research include the intersection of new and old media, how new media
and audience participation in new and old forms are changing what we
think of *as* media, and the new folklore of an internet culture where
word of mouth moves much faster and further than ever before.
Manga/anime and other graphic narrative forms, speculative fiction and
fanworks in all genres are other prominent areas of interest.
Currently Anne works in the consulting division of UO's Center for
Media and Educational Technologies, helping professors and GTFs to use
and understand technology in education. After next year, she's planning
to get a Masters in Library and Information Science, in order to further
study and share these interests with others.
Outside of academia, Anne is an avid filker (the folk music of science fiction), dabbling writer both of original fiction and 'fanfiction', and a voracious reader. A video game enthusiast, she prefers RPGs to FPSs, and helps manage an RP community of about 60 people on the journaling site Livejournal.
