Eric Jenkins

Eric S. Jenkins (Ph.D. University of Georgia) grew up in the suburbs in Dallas, Texas, developing a distaste for consumerism and a simultaneously love for all things media like videogames and movies. Subsequently, he studies the interconnection between media and consumerism, with an emphasis on the modes of mediated consumption and their affective capacities. Disney animation was both a first love (of media) and a first hate (of consumerism).
