This is the end!
On Friday I submitted the thesis officially, after having had it printed and bound at a copy shop, and after having prepared three USB sticks with the film. Sending it off felt fantastic. I am hereby done with this master’s programme, which has been my main focus for the past two years, and the reason why I started this “study diary”.
Although the thesis will now be graded and I will receive a diploma in January 2021 or so, I think I can now say:
I am an anthropologist!
Damn, that felt good!
I’ll end the study diary now. These weekly posts have been a way for me to document my way through this programme, but also to push me to read things, and to keep track of what I’ve read. I’m happy I kept up with it every week until the end, although we hardly had any classes or readings in the last semester (or even year).
But just because the programme ends, my research does not, of course. I’m very invested in my research subject and plan to write much, much more about it, just not here (and as I write this, “here” means on Gapnotes.com, but I often move around my content to other domains so who knows where this text is being read now).
Thank you for reading!
