  • Elizabeth Hunter is a critical theorist and digital maker. From immersive theatre to spatial computing, her research asks what happens when we inhabit a canonical story’s space—and the story seeps into ours. She is currently Assistant Professor of Theatre Studies and Director of the Fabula(b) Theatre + New Media incubator at San Francisco State University. Her work has been supported by Northwestern University’s Center for Interdisciplinary Research in the Arts, a Segal Design Fellowship, The Garage at Northwestern, the American Association for University Women, and Microsoft, where she was one of nine women, worldwide, featured in their inaugural “Women in Mixed Reality” initiative. Before returning to academia, Hunter was the founder of an immersive theatre company at a restored blast furnace and National Historic Landmark in Birmingham, Alabama. She holds a Ph.D. in Theatre from Northwestern University, an M.F.A. in Dramaturgy from Columbia University, and a B.A. in English from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
