Hello and welcome, I’m Lukas Slothuus, an LSE Fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Science. I recently submitted my ESRC-funded PhD in Political Theory at the University of Edinburgh. I am also a Fellow of AdvanceHE, formerly the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).
My research interests are mostly within contemporary political theory and the history of 20th century European philosophy. They include critical theory; Marxism; political affect; social movements; civil disobedience; the role of intellectuals; the relationship between class and race; and religion and politics.
You can get in touch via email or follow me on Twitter: @lslothuus. You can also access my ORCID and my Google Scholar profiles.
If you are considering applying to a PhD in political theory or a related field and are from a working class or other underrepresented background, I am happy to offer advice and feedback on applications and proposals.
I co-host the Historical Materialism Podcast together with Ashok Kumar. The first episode can be found here:
