Mayara Araujo Caetano
I am a doctoral researcher at the University of Turku in the Media Studies Department interested in playing, players, and much more. My doctoral and main research project is an online ethnography within an online multiplayer sex/porn game, and I have been interested in exploring sexual play and sexualities that unfolds in this location and its connection to broader sociocultural sex consumption and work related to technology.

As a person born and raised in Brazil, I am also interested in sharing about Brazilian playing and gaming cultures. My publications have covered gender, race, class, consumption, accessibility to technology, esports, and communities.
