I wrote several essays as an undergraduate reading sociology at the University of Nottingham between 2001 and 2004. I was particularly interested in the relationship between technology and society.
Below are links to most of my essays (note: many of them are a bit rubbish and make me cringe today!).
- No Jobs & No Oil: the unsustainability of full employment and cheap energy - My undergraduate dissertation in Sociology
My favourite essays
- A basic income scheme due to technological unemployment
- The Internet as an approximation of Habermas' public sphere
- The BBC license fee
- Capitalism and consumption, exploitation and exclusion
- Environmental movements
- Marx: alienation vs. materialism
