Visiting UCT

Today I dropped off my PhD thesis at UCT. This is a revision on my original submission at the end of last year. I had three external examiners - two passed me and one asked for further revision. However, my life at the beginning of this year was complicated by the death of Ross Olivier, the president of the seminary I teach at. Because of the consequent added responsibilities, I was not able to do the revisions. I finally got to them in June and July, and am pictured here handing the revised thesis in to Birgit, the amazingly efficient administrator at the Department of Religious Studies. Now the wait to hear from that (anonymous) examiner.
