Research Interests

Dr. Carbonell is interested in how the posthuman emerges in science fiction and fantasy studies, as well as in how analog-and-digital game studies are fields that describe complex modes of cultural production. His recent work focuses on how tabletop role-playing games offer an archive of fantasy and science fiction gametexts ripe for an investigation into the rise of realized worlds.
