    Samantha, I’m interested in using your paper Listening and Digital Interaction in Björk’s Biophilia (2011) – Ludomusicology for a class I’m teaching on special topics in language education. I wonder if you would send me a copy.

      Jason – so sorry for the very late reply! I hope it’s not too late to be of help. If you’re still interested in using the paper for your course, please contact me via email: samantha.blickhan.2012[at]rhul.ac.uk!
