It's official! I successfully completed my viva (oral defense) with flying colors and will be receiving my Ph.D! It was a great experience in Manchester, England and an honor being examined by two able scholars (Christopher Partridge and Charles Taliaferro). To my surprise, it turned out to be more of a conversation than an examination as they were already impressed with the written work. I am grateful for their input and their willingness to serve in this capacity; it was a joy sharing in this. Many thanks to my doctoral adviser, Lloyd Strickland, for his guidance. I shall never forget the experience!
