Background

Julian Meyer, born 1980, studied cultural anthropology, political science and historical ethnology at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Frankfurt/ Main. In his master’s thesis he described the ways of knowledge production in the usage of flight-simulators in the development process of military aircrafts and the training of pilots. His research interests are anthropology of knowledge, media anthropology, game studies and peace and conflict studies. In his PhD research project he is exploring how children and adolescents produce knowledge while playing violent computer games. More specifically the project aims to inquire the connection between media harm and historical knowledge enabled through World War II first-person shooter.
