Professor Jill Walker Rettberg
University of Bergen
Jill Walker Rettberg is a Professor of Digital Culture at the University of Bergen, Norway. She researches ways in which people tell stories online, looking at electronic literature, blogging, games and social media. She has blogged for over ten years, and is author of the book Blogging (Polity Press 2008; new edition forthcoming 2012) and co-editor of an anthology of critical essays on World of Warcraft, Digital Culture, Play, and Identity (MIT Press 2008).
Due to scheduling issues (i.e. having had to book flights before the program was available), Jill won't be able to present her talk on social media at ISEA, but an earlier article on the same topic is available here:
