Pledge £2 or more

and you will be invited to join my *exclusive* research blog, which I'll run for the duration of my degree. I'll be publishing easily digestible summaries of all the essays and other materials I produce (I expect this to develop during the project), discussions about ideas I am introduced to, debates I have or witness, ideas I pick up from lectures, seminars, and other meetings, thought-provoking quotes I find, and anything else I think you'll find interesting, educational or entertaining. The blog will be not be searchable via Google, and will only be available to donors.
