Donna Leishman is now Dr Leishman! Her PhD thesis was practice-based, consisting of a visual narrative, The Possession of Christian Shaw, which is discussed and considered in terms of theory, practice, and feedback from a number of “expert readers”, of which I was honoured to be one. The thesis is now up, as are the responses from us “experts”, giving rather an interesting collection of different more or less formal readings of a new media work. Here’s mine.
