Welcome to the personal website of Professor Majid Yar
'Looking at the proliferation of personal web pages on the Net, it looks like very soon everyone on Earth will have 15 megabytes of fame'.  ~M.G. Sriram

I am a sociologist and criminologist, based at the University of Hull, UK. My work deals, in various permutations, with the intersections between culture, politics and ethics. I research and write about crime & deviance on the Internet, intellectual property, media and popular culture, and social, political and criminological theory.

At the risk of further cluttering up the Net with yet another web page, I thought it might be worthwhile to have a personalised presence online. On this site you'll find some details about my acadamic background, research expertise and activities, downloadable publications, news and updates, photos, and links to pages of interest. I hope you'll find something here that is interesting, informative, or useful. If you want to get in touch, you can find my details through the 'contact' link on the sidebar.
