(Student Profile)


5223.jpg What are your research interests / what are you working on?
"My research interests focus on contemporary art and its relation to broader socio-political issues. More specifically I would like to work on atrocity images."

What modules have been most fascinating and why?
"So far I have enjoyed all the modules that I have chosen. In particular, I found the module Uses of Photography really fascinating because I had the opportunity to engage with artistic practises and crucial texts in my research field. I also found the module Theory and Historiography helpful. Even though I had already studied History and Theory of Art during my undergraduate studies, this course gave me the opportunity to read and learn how to 'unpack' many important theoretical texts (in English), something really useful for a foreign student, coming from a different academic system."

Why York rather than somewhere else?
"When I decided that I wanted to study in England, I visited the University of York and was impressed by it. From my first visit I felt that there is a strong academic community here, which supports the students, and makes them feel really welcome. The city is beautiful and easy to live in. Additionally, for me it is really important that London is close, so I can visit museums and galleries at every opportunity I have."

What’s the level of support like from staff and the department as a whole, are they receptive to feedback?
"From the very beginning of my studies in the department, the staff were very helpful in introducing me to this new academic environment. The tutorials are a crucial part of the study process - I consider it very important to get critical feedback which will help me improve my research and methodological skills."

What’s been your favourite study trip and why?
"I really enjoyed the study trip to Tate Modern in London where we visited the exhibition Conflict-Time-Photography (Module: Uses of Photography). This exhibition was closely related to my research interests, and the trip gave me the opportunity to exchange opinions with the tutor and my fellow students."

Has the department supported you in career planning?
"The department and the careers office are very keen to help and support our career planning with many and different events and lectures. In addition, the weekly lectures that the department organises have been very useful."
