We are thrilled to announce that Dr Andra Ivănescu is officially joining the Ludomusicology Research Group! Andra is a Lecturer at Brunel University London. She is a ludomusicologist, and her primary area of research lies at the intersection of nostalgia, musicology, and video games. She has published work in the fields of ludomusicology and game studies in journals including The Soundtrack and The Computer Games Journal as well as a number of edited collections, most recently Cambridge Companion for Video Game Music (2021). She is also the author of Popular Music in the Nostalgia Video Game: The Way It Never Sounded (2019). Andra has been a regular speaker at the Ludo conferences over the years, and we’re delighted to be working more closely with her on future events and our other projects.
