Professor John Ó Maoilearca (in English: Mullarkey)

Professor Of Film & Television


I joined Kingston University in 2010 as Professor of Film and TV. My areas of research and teaching are Film Theory; Philosophy and Film; Continental Philosophy; Animal Studies and Film; Philosophy and Non-Philosophy; Theory and Practice. I had previously taught philosophy and film theory at the University of Sunderland, England and the University of Dundee, Scotland. (In 2014 my name reverted from the English 'Mullarkey' to the original Irish, 'Ó Maoilearca', which ultimately translates as 'follower of the animal'.) I welcome applications from PhD students wishing to work in the areas of Film Theory, Film and Philosophy, Film Practice as  Research, Art Practice as Research, Animals and Philosophy, Animals and Representation (especially in film), François Laruelle and Non-Standard Philosophy, Gilles Deleuze, Henri Bergson, Alain Badiou, Michel Henry, Contemporary French Philosophy, and Philosophy Of Diagrams.
