Philippe Gauthier has recently completed a two-year SSHRC postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University. He obtained a double Ph.D. at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) and the University of Montreal (Canada).

In his research, Philippe explores complex narratives in popular media franchises; revisits transmedia storytelling and social media through concepts such as interface, playfulness and immersion; and thinks a lot about animation, seriality and popular culture.

FQRSC and SSHRC fellowships as well as awards from Domitor, Film Studies Association of Canada, Centre for Research into Intermediality, Francophone Association for Knowledge, University of Montreal, University of Ottawa and Bishop’s University have supported his research. His work on editing, television, animation and comic books have been published in French, English, German, Japanese and Portuguese.
