Katamar_MeHowdy. I’m Matthew Payne, associate professor of media studies in the Department of Film, Television, & Theatre at the University of Notre Dame. My research focuses on video games and gaming culture, media industries studies, media literacy, and popular representations of war and conflict.

When I’m not teaching, or writing, or conferencing, or parenting, or playing games, I’m usually asleep.
