Lisanne Meinen is working on a PhD thesis on video games and neurodiversity. Video games are an experiential medium par excellence, but interaction with neurodiversity in games is limited or even stigmatising. Meinen explores the potential of gaming to promote connectedness with neurodivergent experiences. She problematises the current focus on generating empathy, which is often based on one-way interaction. Motivated by care ethics and disability studies, Meinen focuses on the creative-relational practice of interacting with video games.
