Rebecca Rouse

Rebecca Rouse, PhD is a Senior Lecturer in Media Arts, Aesthetics and Narration in the School of Informatics at the University of Skövde, Sweden. Rouse’s research focuses on theoretical, critical and design production work with storytelling for new technologies, such as augmented and mixed reality. Rouse designs and develops projects across museums, cultural heritage sites, interactive installations and theatrical performance—all with the thread of investigating and inventing new modes of storytelling. This design work dovetails with Rouse’s research in design methods, media theory and the history of technology.

The team of MAI supporters and contributors is always expanding. We’re honoured to have a specialist collective of editors, whose enthusiasm & talent gave birth to MAI.
