Souvik Mukherjee

Assistant Professor and Head of the Department

I completed my PhD from Nottingham Trent University, U.K. on videogames and storytelling. My research looks at the narrative and the literary through the emerging discourse of videogames as storytelling media and at how these games inform and challenge our conceptions of narratives, identity and culture. 

Related interests and expertise include a broad spectrum of topics in the Game Studies ranging from identity and temporality in videogames to the videogame industry in South-East Asia.  My monograph Videogames and Storytelling: Reading Games and Playing Books has been published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2015 and Videogames and Postcolonialism: Empire Plays Back has been published in 2017 by Springer. I also work on and teach Digital Humanities and Early Modern (Renaissance) Literature. You can read more about my research on my blog.
