Little did I realise when I started my PhD that I would need to learn to read and write all over again. I am not a sociologist by training, yet I find myself doing a sociology doctorate. When I first started reading some of the sociology texts back in 2003, I had to learn how to look at this new, strange way of writing – I’d never seen anything like it before and reading a couple of pages was a real mission. Now, at the end of my PhD, I have to turn the processed data I’ve read and accumulated through various studies into something of the same quality and structure as those first texts I read 3 years ago, and put it in the form of a thesis.
