    Eleanor Dare is Reader in Digital Media at the Royal College of Art’s School of Communication and Head of the MA Digital Direction (London, UK). She has a PhD in Arts and Computational Technology from Goldsmiths University of London (Department of Computing), supported by a full doctoral studentship from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. Her doctoral thesis and MSc (Distinction) at Goldsmiths were concerned with computer programming practices, subjectivity and artificial intelligence for interactive and responsive books.

    Since completing her PhD in 2011 (titled: “Navigating Subjectivity: South a Psychometric Text Adventure”), she has continued to research the ways in which computational systems try to understand humans, especially what happens when computers attempt to generate human-like cultural expressions. Inevitably, this has resulted in an increasing concern with the significance of the human and the non-human, with situatedness and embodiment. In 2018, she completed an Open University MA in Creative Writing (Distinction), addressing virtuality and non-linear narrative structures. She has exhibited work addressing both the limits and potential of VR/AR and AI.
