Brief Bio

James M. Thomas (JT) is an Assistant Professor of Sociology. Dr. Thomas received his Ph.D. from the University of Missouri in 2011. His research to date bridges the fields of critical race studies, the sociology of everyday life, and cultural theory and inquiry. Throughout, Dr. Thomas employs a variety of qualitative methods, including historical, ethnographic, and textual analysis, to illuminate the histories of racial formations and racisms, and the role of popular cultural forms and ideas in the ongoing production of embodied difference. Broadly, Dr. Thomas's scholarship aims to illuminate 'phenomenologies of power'; or, how a social milieu of interrelated historical, social, and cultural practices bind subjects to one another, and shape subsequent action.
