Patrick J. Lang is an academic based in Adelaide, South Australia, who received his PhD from the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences at Flinders University in 2017, with a specialisation in Screen and Media.
He has written previously on the post-9/11 television thriller and its complicated relationship and interplay with Western constructions of capitalism.
His current research interests are multidisciplinary in approach, combining ideas surrounding genre, cultural theory, early digital esoterica and emerging transmedia or hypertexual/ergodic narratives, and how these varying factors can suggest pathways and renewal for traditional media.
He has written and presented on film, television, video games and popular music. He is a regular contributing writer for the Journal of Gaming and Virtual Worlds.
