University of Bristol
Master in Classics and Ancient History
Ancient Greece. That used to occupy my mind. Starting out in Bristol, I was of a mind to get in a PhD programme, preferrably in the US. And, if things worked out the way I hoped, to become a public academic, sharing the amazing stories of the past with a large audience. While I am still endlessly fasctinated by this time period, the year at Bristol opened my eyes what the academic profession truly entails, and what path one would have to walk to become a public academic, even if you are one of the lucky few to get such an opportunity. I realized then that this what not for, and the study of classical cultures should become a hobby rather than a profession, which it still is today.
