PhD student at the University of Groningen

After completing my Bachelor's degree programme in English Language and Culture I was on the lookout for more depth and specialization. This Research Master's track was just what I was looking for. I was also able to broaden my knowledge by following a number of private seminars and tutorials.

One of the most enjoyable and successful parts of my degree was the tutorial that I set up with my fellow students, The Skelton Project. We worked on a website with digital editions of poems by the medieval poet John Skelton...
In the Research Master’s track we didn’t just conduct research, but developed other skills too. Organizing the conference in the first year, for instance, was good preparation for the organizational side of the academic world. If I hadn’t made the decision to do the Research Master’s track in Classical, Medieval and Early Modern Studies I wouldn’t be where I am now as a PhD student at the University of Groningen. In my PhD research, I am analysing medieval manuscripts containing agricultural texts that English landowners would have read. My interest in this topic was aroused when I was studying the development of this kind of text for my Master’s thesis.
