On the 25th of June I graduated with my doctoral degree for my thesis Charting Habitus: Stephen King, the Author Protagonist and the Field of Literary Production. It’s been a long and, at times, arduous journey, but I got there eventually, and the celebrations were a lovely way to mark the end of my time as a student in higher education.

Here’s a short clip of me collecting my degree:

  7. Congratulations! I couldn’t get the video to work, but I’ll try later. I checked out your Flikr photos though, and the one of you and your dad in black and white with the link bridge and loch in the background is beautiful. That graduation day smile would make a lovely new gravatar if you ever decide to change the one you currently have.
