After finishing my Phd, I plan to continue with my research project on the representation of King Alfred the Great in 21st century multimedia (the overlapping areas of TV series, films, computer games, fan-art, re-enactment etc.) My aim is to show how by playing (with) Alfred, people (re-)write the stories about him to mirror and shape the author’s context.
My name is Martine and I am writing my PhD about the Cyborg Mermaid. On this website, you’ll find blogs about autism, cyborgs, fan fiction, King Alfred of Wessex, mermaids, music & musicology, martial arts, (neuro)psychology, video games, and random nerdiness.
