BA in Philology (English), Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures, University of Bucharest, 2019

This programme has so far offered me some insight into both the mundane and the academic life of the British throughout history, supported by physical examples (ie. Books printed in the 1700s, newspapers and comics from WW1 etc.). I have also had the opportunity to learn more about the political scene of the UK, both past and present, and about British colonialism and decolonisation. I’m looking forward to classes on pop culture, imagology and symbolic violence during my second year and I plan on researching one of these topics.
