Filip Jankowski

Jagiellonian University
Filip Jankowski (MA) is a Ph.D. student at the Faculty of Management and Social Communication in the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Poland. His interests revolve around such themes as video game history and theory, as well as media archaeology and postcolonialism. His master’s thesis described generic tendencies in French adventure video games between 1984 and 1991, focusing on the social and political context of the games of this time, as well as pointing out the identity representation in particular genres. His other, published studies include such articles as Reflection on Postmodern Nomadism in French Science Fiction Games (1987-1992) (2017), New American Patriotism in Games: WWII-Themed Military Shooters in the Shadow of Post-9/11 Politics (2017), Political and Social Issues in French Digital Games, 1982–1993 (2018); An-Other world, an-Other creator. Éric Chahi’s “Another World” as a parable about the Face (2019); and a book chapter Muriel Tramis’ “Méwilo” and “Freedom” as the First Postcolonial Games in the volume of Ksenologie (2018). The author advocates free access to abandoned video games and other types of software which had their publishers gone bankrupt; currently he develops a Polish-language port of Chine Lanzmann’s French game La Femme qui ne supportait pas les ordinateurs (1986).
