About me

Dr Fleming joined the Communications, Media and Culture team in 2017. He was previously an Associate Professor in Film Philosophy at the University of Nottingham, serving on their China campus—which he joined as an Assistant Professor in 2010. Prior to this, he won a full scholarship at the University of St Andrews where he taught and worked towards his PhD (in Film-Philosophy), under the supervision of David Martin-Jones. In a previous strata of life he was an international water polo goalkeeper.

Dr Fleming is the Film and Media BA Programme Director, and co-ordinates modules that include ‘Reading Film & Television,’ ‘Global Film and/as Philosophy’ and ‘East and Southeast Asian Cinemas.’

He is currently completing a biophilosophical media project with William Brown (University of Roehampton, London) tentatively (or tentacularly) titled Kinoteuthis Infernalis: The Rise of Cthulhumedia.

He would welcome PhD applications in the areas of: Film-Philosophy (or film-as-philosophy); global cinemas and thought/ethics/event/time; science fiction cinema and (the limits of) thought; cinema and ecology; cinema and animal studies; film and the work of landmark thinkers. He would also consider novel projects engaging with digital cinema, experiential ‘4D’ (phenomenologies), materialist/physical philosophy, the anthropocene and beyond.
