To celebrate the 2015 Graduate Research Festival, the Graduate Research School launched an Instagram account. We wanted to know where your ‘Workspace in the World’ was – where does your research brilliance ‘happen’? Claire recounts her experience as a Masters candidate…
“I wrote my entire Master’s thesis in bed. It was the old days and I had an early Apple Mac that I’d prop on my knees like a laptop (I was an innovator). I liked writing in bed because when I got tired I could have a wee nap and when I woke up I could start writing again immediately. I believe one of the reasons I don’t get enough done on my PhD thesis is because my boss won’t let me set up a bed in my office.”
So we asked… are you a J. K. Rowlingesque café goer? Do you compete for Library space with the undergraduates? Have you got the perfect balance of proximity between access to coffee and a source of warmth? And your pictures said it all! The five lucky winners are announced at the conclusion of your following worldly workspaces… enjoy 🙂
The winners have been drawn from the very official hat! Congratulations to…
Georgia Bell, Tyler Northern, Rebecca Ahmadi, Mike Maze, and Esther Dale
Your $50 prezzy cards will be available for you to collect from the GRS Reception (Ground floor of Clocktower Building, north end) from Monday afternoon onward (7 September). Or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any alternative arrangements.
Thanks again to all of you who shared your photos: your second homes, that spot in the library, your kitchen, the lab; whether love it or hate it, hang on to your little workspace in the world!
