My research focuses on how gameful design – that is, design inspired by game elements and design, applied to non-game contexts – and the resulting game-like experiences have the potential to transform how museum visitors engage with a museum’s physical space. This investigated is supported by a collaborative doctoral award from REACT and Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery (RAMM). The goal is to develop a framework that can be adapted by museums to inform the creation of rich, interactive, and gameful experiences that engage their audiences in a playful way. This framework will then be tested at the RAMM as part of my investigation, with the creation of diverse gameful experiences, such as museum-hosted game jams, gameful trails, and mixed reality game experiences.
As part of this investigation, I will study different kinds of gameful experiences in museums, from the use of full-fledged videogames as support and educational tools, to gamified platforms, to exhibitions built from the ground up to be game-like, to hybrid reality gameful experiences.

Assistant Professor of Corporate Communication and Public Affairs, Southern Methodist University
Stephanie A. (Sam) Martin brings nearly 20 years of experience in corporate, media and political (campaign) work to bear in her research, which investigates the discourse of conservative social movements in the contemporary United States. She is especially interested in how political rhetorics about fiscal issues intersect with political rhetorics about social issues, and so work to reinforce one another. She is currently writing a book that explores how evangelicals have used news and other forms of mass media to promote government policies of fiscal conservatism and personal responsibility for ameliorating economic hardship in the aftermath of the national recession of 2008, and have agitated against increased spending on public welfare programs. The book also examines how the public discourse (and political priorities) of evangelicals is not only about abortion and other such cultural hot-button issues, but includes a preference for conservative economic policymaking, as well.
Martin has written journal articles and book chapters about conservative social and economic discourse in the United States. She is also interested in First Amendment jurisprudence.
Martin worked for her first political campaign in the summer between her senior year of high school and first year of college, when she volunteered at a phone bank for a candidate to the United States Senate from her home state of Idaho. Since that time she has remained an active participant in and observer of the United States political process and has worked on both national and statewide campaigns. As a media practitioner, Martin served as a project coordinator and staff writer for a PBS affiliate in Washington, D.C., and has also written extensively for several business-to-business publications sponsored by General Motors. She began her career as a project manager and industrial engineer, first for the Boeing Company and then for Hewlett-Packard.
As a teacher, Martin is deeply committed to helping students discover their own voices, as well as find ways to make their classroom experiences apply to their everyday, practical (and professional) lives. She encourages her students to apply their education to questions of social justice wherever they can, and to believe in the always-revolutionary notion that one person can make a real difference in the world.

Lecturer in Law and Co-director Liverpool European Law Unit, University of Liverpool
Stephanie was appointed Lecturer in Law at the School of Law and Social Justice in September 2013. She is a graduate of L'Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and the University of Liverpool and completed her PhD studies at the latter institution in March 2015.
Stephanie's area of expertise falls primarily within EU law, specifically EU constitutional law, the law of the single market, Union citizenship and the EU legal framework relating to the protection of fundamental rights. Her doctoral thesis analyses the Court of Justice's approach to adjudicating tensions between the Treaty free movement provisions and fundamental rights. It argues that the Court's adjudicative methodology offers procedural prioritisation to free movement over fundamental rights and that this has concrete consequences for fundamental rights protection. The thesis runs a diagnostic analysis of the causes of this adjudicative imbalance concluding that it is the result of historical factors and significant constitutional evolutions. This uneven adjudicative architecture is then critiqued against fundamental rights theory and the Union's contemporary constitutional framework. Ultimately an alternative model of adjudication is proposed rooted in the concept of balancing.
Stephanie has also published in leading journals on the introduction of the 'genuine enjoyment test' to the EU citizenship legal landscape, and on the relationship between free movement and fundamental rights in the area of housing policy. In 2014, she was also appointed UK co-rapporteur at the XXVI FIDE Congress, hosted by the University of Copenhagen, on the topic of "Union Citizenship: Development, Impact and Challenges". As an active member of the Liverpool European Union Law Unit, Stephanie contributed extensively to the UK Government's UK/EU Balance of Competences Review. Developing this work, she is currently working with other members of LELU on a series of UK ESRC-funded events around the UK's renegotiation of its relationship with the European Union and the forthcoming referendum on UK membership of the EU. From September 2015, Stephanie became Director of the Liverpool European Law Unit.
Stephanie enjoys teaching on a wide range of engaging subjects including criminal law, EU law, and the School's innovative Law and Social Justice module.
Prior to joining the School, Stephanie worked in policy and communications at the Merseyside Brussels Office.
Stephen joined the Monash Business School on 1 January 2016. Appointed on a 0.4 basis, he will spend four months each year at the Monash Business School while transitioning to emeritus status as the David S. Loeb Professor of Finance at New York University Stern School of Business.
Stephen has published widely in a range of high quality journals, including Econometrica, the Journal of Finance, the Journal of Financial Economics, the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, the Review of Financial Studies, and the Journal of Business. He is the author of five books, two of which have been translated into Japanese. As well as serving on a number of editorial boards, Stephen was a founding editor of the Review of Financial Studies (A*) and has just stepped down as Managing Editor of the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis (A*).
