Jeremy's photo

Jeremy has a BA (Hons) in Cultural Studies from North East London Polytechnic (1985), an MA in Ideology and Discourse Analysis (1986) and a PhD in Political Theory on Thomas Hobbes (1993), both from the Department of Government, University of Essex. Jeremy has worked at Queen Margaret University since 2000. Prior to that he has worked at Bristol Polytechnic, University of Essex, East London University, Manchester Metropolitan University and Lancaster University. Currently Jeremy teaches the core level 3 module Media, Culture and Society.

Jeremy’s research is focussed on the ways in which the relations between media, culture and politics can be explained and understood. To do that his research draws on the field of philosophy, politics, art, economics and critical theory.

Jeremy has published on post-marxism, deconstruction and public relations, art and exhibitions, political theory and cultural studies. Some of this work has involved collaborations with institutions such as Tate Modern, Tate Liverpool, and the Athens Biennial. He has been invited to present his work at Universities in the UK as well as abroad, most recently at Bergen, Athens and Kansas City.

He is currently working on two main topics, the relation between culture and economy, and the political imagination. Jeremy is a founding editor of Taking On The Political, a monograph series published by Edinburgh University Press.
