Last month I officially started my PhD at the university of Amsterdam and I got a really warm welcome.
Now that my thesis is finally submitted, let me tell you a bit more about it.
As some of my readers might have noticed, I’m currently specialising in South African literature – Afrikaans literature, to be more precise. I myself am Dutch, and had never set a foot in South Africa until three months ago. It is kind of weird to specialise in a literature that I’m so uncommon with and it has its own specific challenges.
There are too many interesting things to do in the world.
Two years ago, I read Ulysses for the first time. Last semester, I did a course on this incredible book and I reread it.
Last week I told you all about some frustrations regarding my bachelor thesis. This Friday, I finally submitted it, so I can finally tell you all the details about my work!
