Unfortunately, my Christmas break in Germany has started with me coming down with a relapse of the flu. As difficult as that is I know there couldn’t be a better place to be ill; with all the various health potions my sister has been sending my way I am bound to be back up and running again soon enough. In between rest and more rest, I have been doing some essay research – such is the life of an Multimedia Journalism MA student – I have two essays to write over the holidays!
Here’s a fascinating documentary on how Freud’s cousin helped to construct a consumerist society after World War II.
It’s well a worth a watch if you’re looking for something a little educational and eye-opening this Christmas break.
