Morten Christian Heuser

Morten is a Master student in Techno-Anthropology. His main research interests are located in the nexus of digital games, culture and society. He has previously written about marginalization in digital games and game production in South Africa, gender dynamics in eSports, the use of cheating in games and the micro-transactional economy of skins. Now, in his thesis he is investigating the role and potential of Anthropology in digital games research, and mapping out methodological issues and advantages that occur when the anthropologist enters the virtual world in avatar form.
