About this research notebook
This research notebook starts with a question: what meaning should I give to my thesis work? What impact does it have on my environment? Is the thesis necessarily this austere and trying exercise that I have been described so much?
The ambition of this research notebook is to show that it’s possible to try creativity and unusual experience through the PhD work. This creativity is not expressed to the detriment of more formal university exchange times and, on the contrary, it improves the analysis and understanding of one’s materials and sources.
My goal is to share positive experiences from the PhD daily life and to question the human and ecological impact of my work.
Why a special section in English?
Because I dream of coming to an English-speaking country, visiting universities, speaking on my research topic and having a dialogue with researchers from other countries. With this section, I make myself more accessible.
