Phillip Penix-Tadsen specializes in Latin American cultural studies, focusing on the intersections between politics, economics, new media, and visual culture in the region today. He earned a Ph.D. from Columbia University with the doctoral thesis Marketing Marginality: Resistance and Commodification in Contemporary Latin American Cultural Production, which focuses on a spectrum of media spanning literature, film, journalism, political discourse, graffiti, television, blogs, and viral videos. He has published work in journals including Latin American Research Review and Ciberletras. His current book project, Cultural Code: Video Games and Latin America, examines the ways video games use culture as well as how cultures use video games, pushing for a more nuanced theoretical contextualization of the dynamics between the two through case studies related to Latin America.
