Viva Celebration

My viva took place on 1 October 2010.  Below are some pictures that were taken with my examiners, supervisors and colleagues at the celebration following the viva.  Thanks to Dr Kate Astbury from the Department of French Studies who organised and chaired my viva as well as Cynthia Sau-Kuen Tsui for taking the photos, as it was the last thing on my mind at the time, but now it is great to have the memory!
