Les Back on the PhD Viva

One of my favourite books is Les Back’s open access Academic Diary. I’ve posted some links to it before. Les’ book is a collection of short pieces about various aspects of academic life. This week I examined a PhD thesis, which triggered me to return to Les’ Academic Diary to see what he had to say about the process. I found this piece. After reading the piece it seemed like a good idea to share it here. As with the other entries in the book, it gives a really thoughtful analysis of a routine part of academic life.
