PhD Thesis Defense Impressions

   Posted by: CursedPoet    in Giger, Studying

Exactly six months ago (on October 25, 2017), I successfully defended my PhD thesis titled “Monomodal and Multimodal metaphor and Metonymy in the Art of H.R. Giger” in front of the PhD committee, my professor and supervisor Mario Brdar, and my family, friends, and students at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Osijek, Croatia. The whole thing felt appropriately surreal and magical, and unlike anything else so far in my life – this is it, the final step! My dream and what feels like a culmination of my academic interest and personal love came true. I owe eternal gratitude to my dear supervisor, professors in the committee and everyone who supported my PhD journey. In two days I’ll have my promotion and I’m pretty excited – the announcement, the throwing of hats (at least I think we’ll throw them)! I hope another two years don’t pass till my next post, though. =)

A few visual impressions from the defense and afterwards (the defense, with my supervisor, chilling with my professors and family at a nice café in Osijek – I had a smoothie, of course):
