Alex Wade

Alex Wade is currently superving a lot of PhD students in Social Sciences in a number of fields. He would like some enquiries from graduates who work in the area of Games Studies; Space, Time and Society; Social Theory and Cultural Theory. 

Alex Wade’s work is at its best where videogames meet society. Using theory to explore these intersections he looks to the histories of games to explore the formation of society during the Cold War and beyond. Of particular interest in his work are concepts of space, time, consumption as a function of production and the role of science and technology applied to the development of the contemporary world.
