Overview


Dr Christopher (Chris) Moore is a senior lecturer in Media and Communication, specialising in Digital and Social Media, Future Studies and Game Experience Design. Originally from Tasmania, Chris graduated from the University of Wollongong and worked as a journalist before conducting his PhD research on intellectual property and the rise of ‘open’ mechanisms for managing copyright in the digital domain. In 2010, Chris moved to Melbourne to take up an Alfred Deakin Postdoctoral Fellowship examining the changes occurring in the digital games industry. Returning to Wollongong in 2014, Chris joined the School of Arts, English and Media in the Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts.

Research Overview


  • My current research focus is contributing to the emerging field of Persona Studies, which examines the public presentation of the self online through social media platforms and digital services. I am the co-author of the 2019 Persona Studies: An Introduction, and a co-editor of the Persona Studies journal. My contribution to Games Studies has examined the role of affect in the public presentation of the self, both as a gamer and in terms of ‘indie’ and independent cultures of game production.  I am also currently involved in research which looks at the potential operation and application of Virtual and Augmented realities in teaching and learning.
