I’m going to Malta! PhD Vlog 5 and Edinburgh Libraries


Hi all, two quick updates for you all here on R2R:

First, I’m going to Malta! As you can hear about in my fifth PhD vlog, embedded below. In this video, the first of a three-part series, I look forward to my first ever academic conference presentation. I talk about the application process, the two videos that will follow this one — and a little bit of actual literature-based content, as I introduce you to the topic of my presentation, which will be called ‘The War on Terroir: Biology as (unstable) space in Jeff VanderMeer’s “Southern Reach” trilogy’.

If anyone’s interested in finding out more about my actual paper get in touch. Anyway, here’s the video:

Secondly, I realise I didn’t post a blog update about my recent Inciting Sparks article on the (deplorable) state of local government policy when it comes to protecting and maintaining Edinburgh’s invaluable public library service. Please do have a read, it’s definitely one of the more important topics I’ve written about. You can find that one here:
