Virtual Worlds and Virtual Experiences


Dr Denise Doyle completed her PhD at the University of East London in December 2010 and graduated from UEL in November 2011. She was a senior faculty member in Media and Communications at the University of Wolverhampton throughout her part-time PhD. Her thesis, ‘Art and The Emergent Imagination in Avatar Mediated Online Space’, investigated the artist’s experience of the imaginary in virtual worlds, and developed a framework for a new theory of the imagination that incorporates experiences of mediated spaces created through interdisciplinary research in art and technology. With a background in Fine Art Painting (BA Hons from Winchester School of Art) and Design and Digital Media (MA from Coventry University), Denise is an artist, curator and practice-based researcher, and is currently Reader in Digital Media at the University of Wolverhampton. She is Series Editor for the Intellect Press Journal of Virtual Creativity.
