As part of my fellowship by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), I’ll be spending the next months as a Visiting Student in the Sociology Department at Lancaster University. Continuing the work on my dissertation, this time the focus lies on the analysis of my empirical material as well as on expanding and writing parts of my thesis.
At the start of term Lancaster University is very busy – induction week and week one are full of events making settling in rather easy. Many students are involved in volunteering activities, such as “Green Lancaster” which promotes environmental projects or a food co-operative selling fruits and vegetables from local farmers.
In the upcoming week the practice theory reading group will be visiting Leighton Moss for a session on bird watching in practice. More on this soon to come!
