Thomas is a Lecturer in Media Studies in the Lincoln School of Film & Media. He has previously worked as a sessional lecturer and tutor at The University of Melbourne (wherefrom he also received his PhD) and Swinburne University of Technology, both in Australia, and was a research fellow at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Germany.
Thomas’ research is focused primarily on three areas: concepts of mediation, representation, communicability, and time in contemporary 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.
