Tom Nicholas is a PhD Student based in the UK. He creates a popular series of educational videos on YouTube aimed at being accessible introductions to key theories in cultural studies and the wider humanities. His What The Theory? series has covered topics such as semiotics, structuralism, phenomenology, modernism, postmodernism, postcolonialism, psychoanalysis and more. He also occasionally intersperses these videos with video essays that put some of the concepts explored in his What the Theory? series into practice in an engaging way—usually through looking at some aspect of contemporary film and television.
