“As a summer research scholar, I am learning the essential analytical skills needed for postgraduate study.”

Anrinya is a recipient of the University’s Summer Research Scholarship, which supports her work compiling an annotated bibliography of criticism on Shakespeare's Pericles over the summer months for Professor Tom Bishop.

“I’m passionate about literary and performance theory and I hope to teach English literature and possibly drama at tertiary level one day. I am interested in postcolonial Shakespeare and am looking forward to undertaking a masters thesis next year.

“The honours programme constantly pushes one to the limits of their capabilities, allowing them each day to explore ever-expanding horizons. I like the interdisciplinary nature of our department and the dedicated and supportive staff here make the programme worthwhile.”
