Doctoral Study and Cultural Identity
My colleague Adrian Holliday (who many of you will know from his writings) is looking for doctoral students willing to respond to the following questions:
1. What impact has doing a PhD had on your cultural identity?
(‘Cultural’ may be interpreted in a number of ways and you are of course at liberty to contest the term or define it in a way that you like.)
2. What do you think about the dominant view in some areas that doing a PhD in Britain is a particularly Western activity which might not have sufficient recognition of other backgrounds?
(Here you might also consider what you know of the experience of others.)
