Just a couple of pieces of news to share. The first is rather self-evident, given the photograph accompanying this entry: I graduated from my PhD! It was a lovely day. I have decided I like the floppy PhD graduation hats much better than mortarboards, they are so much easier to keep on your head. My parents visited and took me for a fancy meal to celebrate. It’s rather strange to be officially receiving my doctorate as I write up my dissertation for the MA, and I’m sure I’ve confused lots of people “You’re graduating from a PhD? I thought you were doing an MA?!”. Still, I think this slight career path adjustment been the right choice for me.
The other news is that the conference report myself and the other sponsored students at LILAC put together has been published in the Journal of Information Literacy. The report centres around the key themes of the conference, and you can see my handiwork under the ‘Supporting Research’ theme, one of my favourite topics. The report also features a photo of me in party frock. I’m obviously having a photogenic month!
