About Prof. FROME, Jonathan

Jonathan Frome earned a Ph.D. in Communication Arts, with an emphasis in Film Studies, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as well as a B.A. in Philosophy from Amherst College and an M.A. in English from the University of Florida-Gainesville. He studies emotional responses to media using an interdisciplinary approach that combines philosophy, cognitive psychology, and analysis of media narrative and style. He is particularly interested in our emotional responses to videogames and how they differ from our responses to non-interactive artworks, such as film. He has presented at dozens of conferences and is currently working on a book about emotion and videogames. His other areas of interest include documentary film and animation.
