Dr Nicholas Thoburn - Personal details
I came to Manchester in 2003, having taught in Sociology and Cultural Studies departments in London and studied at the University of Sheffield, the University of York, and Goldsmiths University of London. My research is broadly located in Cultural Sociology, where I focus on the sociology of the book and publishing, social movements, and social and cultural theory, especially Deleuze, Foucault, and Marx. I am an affiliated member of CRESC and an editorial board member of the culture and politics journal New Formations.
I have published in leading journals such as Social Text, Economy and Society, Theory, Culture and Society, New Media and Society, and Cultural Critique. I am the author of Deleuze, Marx and Politics (Routledge 2003, translated into Korean and Turkish) and co-editor of Deleuze and Politics (Edinburgh University Press 2008) and Objects and Materials (Routledge 2013). I am currently writing a monograph on the media forms of political publishing.
