We talk to Julia Hiltscher¬† (pictured in 2004 commentating at the world cyber games on GIGA TV) about her PhD topic, the intersection of culture and the MOBA genre. Julia is a former pro gamer, worked as an esports journalist, has been working with ESL for almost 20 years, was a founding editor of the Esports Yearbook¬† , is a board member of the ERN, and is now getting ready to defend her thesis. It’s a fascinating take on the genre and presenters Stephanie Orme and Brian McCauley are pretty sure she will pass no problem. Well there’s no evidence there is anything she cannot do.
