One of the most useful things I found in preparing for the viva was reading the questions other people had experienced...so here are 13 (out of many) questions (not verbatim...from my memory 🤯) that I had in my viva last week... #phdchat #phdviva #AcademicChatter #thesis
1. What would your elevator pitch be to summarise your thesis? A summary in your own words, say you met someone

2. What is your motivation to research this topic?

3. What spoke to you about a foucualdian approach , why did you choose it?
4. What have you learnt doing a doctorate?

5. What is the value of a Foucauldian approach?

6. How do you understand resistance, conceptually?
