Timothy Welsh

Timothy Welsh received a Ph.D. in English from the University of Washington in 2011. His research and teaching interests cluster around the intersection of modern literary and artistic practice and digital media studies. His book Mixed Realism: Videogames and the Violence of Fiction (University of Minnesota Press 2016), compares print novels and console videogames to present an approach to narrative fiction that responds to the expanded role of virtual environments in contemporary life.
