Jackie Stevens

Jackie Stevens is an Assistant Professor in the Law and Society Program at UC Santa Barbara. She presents on AgoraXchange, an online collaboration for imagining and building a massive multiplayer online game. AgoraXchange offers a tangible political alternative to our current world order. The project is conceptualized as a new media version of Thomas More's "Utopia." More uses the convention of documenting a community to make his ideas especially vivid, a goal to which the researchers behind AgoraXchange aspire in the medium of the online game. AgoraXchange was commissioned by Tate Online and launched on March 15, 2004.
