Warren Ellis is an author of comics, novels, and television. Well known for both this and for sociocultural commentary, both through his online presence and through his writing. Themes in his writing include nanotechnology, cryonics, mind transfer, human enhancement and folkloric themes.
Warren’s research themes fit very well with staff and student interests in the School of ADC. Particularly the new provision in Games, Illustration (sequential image) and in Computer Science (HCI, ethical hacking, Internet of Things). He is an inspirational speaker, an innovative speaker and brings Hollywood, international, national and significant digital experience that will be of benefit to staff and students within and beyond the school.
Warren is very charismatic and warm, and his knowledge and enthusiasm for narrative, in all its forms, will be enormously beneficial to the school.
