Annie Heslinga is a PhD candidate at the Erasmus School of History Culture and Communication (Department of History). 

 

Her doctoral research is funded by the NWO PhD in the Humanities competition, under the project “Mainstreaming the game: digital participatory culture and consumer society in the Netherlands (1985 - present)” (promoters prof. dr. Ben Wubs and prof. dr. Paul van de Laar). The project investigates the growth of gaming in the Netherlands, illustrating how local contexts, particularly those outside of the United States, are crucial to understand the global nature of the game industry. 

 

The research aims to demonstrate how the consumer dynamics of the European game market have impacted production-side logics, particularly in terms of the uptake and use of digital and internet technologies. In doing so, the research also addresses how the internet and digital technologies have impacted consumer society over time, situating digital media consumption at the center of online interaction.

 

Annie holds an International Master’s degree (2019, cum laude) from the Erasmus Mundus programme Global Markets, Local Creativities, conferred by Erasmus University Rotterdam, the University of Glasgow, and the University of Barcelona. She has worked as a researcher for New York University’s Department of Sociology and for the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (Beeld en Geluid). Additionally, she has worked in grant writing for the education technology non-profit InnovateEDU in New York City.
