Description de l’événement (en anglais)

Dr. Florence M. Chee is Associate Professor of Digital Communication in the School of Communication and Program Director of the Center for Digital Ethics and Policy (CDEP) at Loyola University Chicago, USA.

She is also Founding Director of the Social & Interactive Media Lab Chicago (SIMLab), devoted to the in-depth study of social phenomena at the intersection of society and technology.

Her book, Digital Game Culture in Korea: The Social at Play (2023 Lexington Books), which she will present in the conference, critiques commonly held notions of online game addiction by taking an ethnographic look at the social and cultural roles that games fulfill in everyday life.

As a technocultural ethicist, Dr. Chee’s international experience and perspectives build upon decades of research examining the social, cultural, and ethical shifts in emergent digital lifestyles, working to translate insights about lived contexts across industrial, governmental, and academic sectors. Frequently sought out as a speaker, writer, and advisor, her sociotechnical interventions inform and influence the necessary decisions made in design, development, and policy arenas.
