Buried in reading

20130531-205244.jpg

Reading, making notes, summarizing and then selecting the appropriate ideas and arguments to forward your own arguments or to set the backdrop of the presentation. What grad student doesn’t get trained in this process?

The top 4 books are vital, fascinating finds in my research process. At least 3 of them were key texts in what I explored in my coursework, and parts of them will be quoted in my final thesis.

While reading up on visual communication, I fell into critical tourism, and in turn in love with critical geography, a field I didn’t even know existed. Ah, the wonder of academic inquiry that leads us down twists and turns of questions and explorations unexpected!
