About Jakob Nilsson

Jakob A. Nilsson is Assistant Professor of Film Studies at the unit of Media and Communications. Research interests include audiovisual media as form for articulating philosophy, theory-driven political video art, and Gilles Deleuze. Jakob is currently finishing a monograph for Edinburgh University Press called Cinecepts, Deleuze, and Godard-Miéville. Developing Philosophy through Audiovisual Media. In this book he formulates a new theory of audiovisual media seen as a resource for the formal development of philosophy, and with basis in critical reexaminations of Deleuze and close studies of Jean-Luc Godard och Anne-Marie Miéville’s 1970s video works. Jakob has previously also written about aesthetic-political and ecological isssues in John Akomfrah’s video work Vertigo Sea, most recently in a book chapter in Screen Ethics and Global Politics, eds. Lucy Bolton, David Martin-Jones, Robert Sinnerbrink, Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, forthcoming 2022/23. This chapter is also one of the results of an individual three-year research project called “Modern Essay Films as Thought-Maps of Globalization” (2015-2018) financed by the Swedish Research Council.

Jakob primarily teaches at the film program at Örebro University. He has also taught film studies, aesthetics, and philosophy at Linnaeus University, Stockholm University, Södertörn University, Stockholm University of the Arts, and The Royal Institute of Art.
