PhD: passed!

Tags: , ,

My PhD viva (viva voce = oral examination = defense) was last Tuesday the 20th of November. It went extremely well, and I can say that I feel very lucky because the two hours of intense discussion felt stimulating and positive. It was a real discussion, not an exam, and this makes all the difference. You can read here if you want to have some more detail on the viva itself.

So… what’s next?

First a little rest – but not too much actually (it just does not seem possible) – or at least a little suspension time with no decisions on what to commit to. Obviously I am still teaching at LCC and looking after i-Docs, but I need to think where to concentrate the rest of my energies: more teaching? some consulting? some interactive production? a little of all these mixed together?

Time will tell. For now I keep my options opened…

But one thing is sure: I will look for ways to publish my PhD as a book (if you have any ideas of possible publishers please do get in touch!). So I was advised not to upload my final version of the PhD on this website… which is a shame… and I feel really bad about this. I am going to inquire if such competition between paper and online publishing really still exist (I thought it was all about  the more dissemination the better!) and then I am going to decide.

The same about this website: although this blog was born as being part of my PhD  I will keep the domain, probably redesign the structure and keep blogging. But for now all my new articles are being published on so make sure you follow that website if you are interested in what is happening in interactive documentary land!

For now it is a farewell, but I will be back very soon… till then, happy i-docsing!

    Hello Sandra,
    First congratulations on your accomplishment, you must be very proud. I too am a doctoral student, but I am in my first year. I have been searching for my research area for the past few months and have decided that I want to study interactive documentary. I too worked in television production and now teach TV prodution at a high school in florida. I was an associate film producer in Los Angeles and am in the process of making my 2nd historical documentary for our local historical society. But now I want to go interactive all the way.
    I would love to read your dissertation…I see above that you will not be publishing it…if there is any way I could get a copy so that I might find an area to expand on for my dissertation that would be great. Or, if you have any ideas or suggestions, I would truly appreciate them.
    Thanks…and again, congratulations

    Hi Susan,

    thanks for the comment and sorry for my late reply… I curate and write on now… and so I tend to forget about!!! This is terrible, I know…
    Anyhow, you will be pleased to know that my PhD is now part of public domain – as Goldsmiths has put it online on their e-publishing website!
    Follow this link … and do not forget to send comments and feed-back!!!
    Happy reading and good luck with your research…
