Felix Schröter, M. A., studied Communication and Media Studies as well as Musicology at Hamburg University. From 2006 to 2010 he worked as student assistant on various projects at the Hans Bredow Institute, among others on the music industry in Hamburg and on the German media system. From October 2010 until July 2011 he worked as a junior researcher on projects at the Institute, especially on a project on the reception of moving images in converging media environments. During his studies he also dealt with NS cinema in Hamburg in the context of a DFG project on regional film research, and in his master’s thesis he examined questions of usage and analysis of digital games.
His main research interest is for contact points of games research and theories of communication and media studies on media reception and analysis. He has pursued this focus since April 2011 in his PhD project on “Rezeption und Analyse von Computerspielfiguren” [Reception and Analysis of Characters in Video Games] at the Media and Communication Institute at Hamburg University. Since August 2011, he works at his institute as researcher in the field of aesthetics and narrativity of computer games.
