This is a newsletter about technology, media and culture. It will include links and information about books, articles, podcasts and videos as well as reflections on my own writing.

I’m a Professor of Sociology at the University of York, UK. I write about culture, media, politics and society. Much of my work has explored how transformations in technology and media – such as social media, mobile devices and algorithms – have reshaped culture and society. For the last few years I’ve been focusing mainly upon questions around the politics of data and metrics. Alongside this I also work on the history and future of social thought. In addition to the above, I also co-edit the journal Theory, Culture & Society. Information about my books and other writing can be found on my website.
