Last year I was the invited free will expert at the inter-disciplinary, multi-genre science fiction and fantasy convention Nine Worlds. This year I was invited back to run four panels, covering feminism and Netflix’s Jessica Jones; Dragon Age; time travel in film; and what academics can learn from video games.

Additionally, fellow Cardiff philosopher Liz Irvine and I are launching a new engagement project called ‘RPG: Relating Philosophy and Gaming’, with a series of public-facing events exploring the links between philosophy and video games, drawing on our own research and experts from both academia and the video game industry.

Finally, I’m the founding editor of the Epicurean Cure, which explores the intersection of academia and pop culture. Not only does this provide a platform to engage with the public, but also to work with authors, developers, and other creators, shaping new narratives and affecting professional practice.

If you’d like to get involved with the Epicurean Cure, or speak at/host an RPG event, do get in touch. If you’d like me to speak at your event, or otherwise work with me, please drop me an email.
