Dr Lukas Slothuus

Welcome! I’m an LSE Fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Science. I teach LSE100, LSE's flagship interdisciplinary social science course. I am also a Visiting Fellow in the Department of Government at LSE and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I completed my ESRC-funded PhD in Politics at the University of Edinburgh. During my PhD I was a Visiting Graduate Student at Cornell University and a Visiting Fellow at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO).

I have extensive teaching experience within political theory, the ethics of war, international political economy, interdisciplinary understandings of climate change, and social studies of artificial intelligence.

Before my PhD, I completed my undergraduate degree in politics at the LSE, an AHRC-funded master's degree in philosophy at Central Saint Martins and an ESRC-funded master's degree in politics at the University of Edinburgh.

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 am on the Corresponding Editorial Board of Historical Materialism and co-host the Historical Materialism Podcast together with Ashok Kumar. You can listen to the podcast here.
