About

Hi!

Welcome to my blog. I’m Thomas.

I’m currently working as a PhD researcher and graduate teaching assistant in the School of Management at the University of Leicester. I started at Leicester in 2011 after completing the Research Master programme in social and political philosophy at Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Before that I did an MA in philosophy at the University of Glasgow.

My research in the School of Management at Leicester looks at how radical anarchist and socialist political groups can use social media in order to facilitate horizontal organisation. I’ve been active on the left in Scotland and the Netherlands for the last few years and I want my research to have a real and beneficial impact on the political struggles I’m involved in.

If you want to get in touch, drop me an email at trs6 (at) le (dot) ac (dot) uk

Everything you’ll find on this blog is written in a personal capacity unless otherwise stated.

      Hi Chioma. Thanks for the kind words. I’m on twitter as @thomasswann1 I’ve not stopped blogging. I’m just generally rubish at keeping up with it. I’ve got a few posts in the works so you should be seeing something soon on the blog. I had a look at your blog. It’s really good; a really nice range of topics covered.
