About Thomas Sutherland

Thomas is a Lecturer in Media Studies in the Lincoln School of Film & Media. His research is located primarily at the interstices between media studies, communication studies, and philosophy, and is currently focused on three areas: concepts of mediation, representation, communicability, and time in European philosophy; the longue durée of media history, especially the ways in which our apperception of time and space has been transformed through media technologies; and political normativity in media theory, with a particular focus upon notions of speed, productivity, and futurity.

Department Responsibilities

Thomas teaches on a number of modules as part of the Media Studies programme, and other programmes in the Lincoln School of Film and Media, specializing in the history and philosophy of media and communication, as well as critical and cultural theory more broadly. He is also a personal tutor for the Media Studies programme, and an undergraduate dissertation supervisor.
