And last but not least: Prof. al-Kaysani got married last week! And while he has explicitly asked for no fuss to be made, we have organised a small gift and a card that you are all welcome to sign. It will be on my desk until September 7th.

Course Leader BA (Hons) Curating
Nile’s eyes are stuck on the word ‘married’. Her mouth drops open, toast falling into her lap without her noticing.
When Nile decided on doing a PhD in Rotterdam and went through the process of applying, she had imagined meetings with her supervisor as the two of them looking over her research and her sighing in frustration at what an uphill battle the - necessary but endless - revisions they decided on would be.
What Nile hadn’t particularly anticipated was that so much of being a PhD candidate would be drinking cups of truly excellent mint tea in Professor al Kaysani’s office and being asked about how she felt about her academic career and life in general.
