My name is Kristopher Purzycki, a PhD student in English and Digital Media Studies at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. I am currently working on my dissertation where I take a phenomenological approach to the experience of the videogame player and how they acquire a sense of place. As my conclusion begins to coalesce, I am finding strong parallels between the player and the pilgrim, both engaging a ritualistic process through a liminal space towards a goal that is sacred to their community.

This site is a curation of my various endeavors creative and academic. You may find some pages are still under re-construction as I continue to migrate from an older site. If you have any questions regarding my work or anything you see, please contact me directly at purzycki@uwm.edu.

Thanks for stopping by!
