Andrew Wirzburger seeks to explore the intersection of games and political discourse. At this intersection, he primarily researches wargames and their relation to processes of simulation, historicization, and the discursive imagination of social myth and political subjectivity. He analyses how games are played, sold, discussed, understood, and otherwise socialized in order to critique the roles they play — or might play — in hegemonic projects of discourse.
Wirzburger received his B.A. in English Language and Literature from Stonehill College and his M.A. in Media Studies from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.
Andrew Wirzburger is a doctoral student at the Annenberg School for Communication.
