Dr. Jon Saklofske
Jon Saklofske is a Literature Professor at Acadia University in Nova Scotia, Canada. His interest in the ways that William Blake’s composite art illuminates the relationship between words and images on the printed page has inspired current research into alternative platforms for open social scholarship as well as larger correlations between media forms and cultural perceptions. In addition to experimenting with virtual environments and games as tools for academic research, communication, and pedagogy, Jon’s other research interests include environmental storytelling in theme parks, values-based game design, and the critical potential of feminist war games.
