Thorslund's fields of interests include film and television history, cultural history, intermediality, time and temporality, memory and historic reception.

The current research project concerns Swedish television in the 1950s within the framework of three thematic chapters: "Media Systems", where intermedial formats and transmedial connections between television and radio, and television and film are explored; "Influences from the West", where early television content with a strong influence from the USA are looked at; and "Television and the Home", where television's installation into domestic space is examined.
