Back to overview

Prof. dr. Jeroen Jansz is Professor of Communication and Media at Erasmus University Rotterdam.

He holds the Chair of Communication and Media in the Department of Media & Communication. He is a member of the Erasmus Research Centre for Media, Communication, and Culture (ERMeCC). He teaches in IBCoM, the International Bachelor's programme in Communication and Media as well as in the international MA Media, Culture and Society.

From 2000-2008, Jansz was Senior Associate Professor at the University of Amsterdam (Department of Communication and ASCoR, the Amsterdam School of Communications Research). Recently, he served as director of the Center for Popular Culture at ASCoR.

His research takes the ubiquity of the Internet as a starting point and aims to understand and explain the changing relations between media consumers and media producers in contemporary participatory culture. This work builds upon his earlier research on interactive entertainment media, in particular video- and computer games.
