Thanks for your interest in Green Media; we are looking forward to hearing from you! Green Media Studies is organized by Prof. dr. Joost Raessens and Dr. Stefan Werning. You can find our contact details below:

Prof. dr. Joost Raessens holds the chair of Media Theory at Utrecht University. His research concerns the understanding of how green media – in the broadest sense, including digital media, theatre, film and television – contribute to ecological thought and facilitate different forms of civic engagement on a micro, meso and macro level.

Dr. Stefan Werning is an Associate Professor for Digital Media and Game Studies at Utrecht University, where he organizes the annual Game Research summer school. He has been a fellow (2006-2010) with the Comparative Media Studies program at MIT, and worked in the digital games industry while completing his PhD research, most notably at Codemasters (2005) and Nintendo of Europe (2007-09).
