Research project: The work of Laura (Riding) Jackson
"I found out about the work of Laura (Riding) Jackson through my supervisor while studying for my undergraduate degree. I am interested in the modernist period and women's writing, especially iconoclastic writers who challenge orthodox thinking. My work is fully funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
"I have learned how to plan and carry out large research projects, and greatly extended my skill set. I can express myself with different digital media (presentations, posters etc) and am much more confident in speaking about my research.
"Postgraduate research is more like working than undergraduate study. Managing is all down to effective planning, but it gives you the freedom to really get to know yourself and also to trust yourself to be self-motivated and reliable. I love having the time to develop my intellectual abilities and knowledge base. I also like to meet new people and undertake what I feel to be important work."
