Dr. Michael Waltemathe

Michael Waltemathe, Ph.D. is Research Associate at the Evangelical Theological Faculty of the Ruhr-University Bochum in the field of religious education and religious studies.
 
For several years he has been working with computer games and religion, especially in the use of computer games in religious education. Computer games are a new media and learning environment that can contain virtual constructions of religious spaces.
 
Michael is presenting A Religious Vision for Interstellar Travel? at the DARPA/NASA 100 Year Starship Study Public Symposium.
 
His theoretical interests include constructivist reflections on religious education and the opportunities to learn in religious plurality. His passion is and remains the game as a phenomenon.
 
Michael is on the Working Group for Religious Education (AfR eV), Working Group for Phenomenology, Organization, and Technology (POT), Editorial Review Board of the International Journal of Technology and Human Interaction, and the International Society for the Sociology of Religion (ISSR).
