MA Thesis: Europeana Building a European Identity

November 8, 2011 2 comments

Last month I was finally able to receive my Masters diploma from the University of Amsterdam. My research about Europeana and the European identity has been found interesting enough to let me pass. However, there are still a lot of questions remaining after finishing this research. My supervisor Theo Thomassen commented that in order to really build a complete study, one more year of study is probably required.

Hereby I want to thank Theo Thomassen for supervising me, as well as many other people I have met during this year in the MA New Media at the University of Amsterdam. Beforehand , I actually did not expected it be so interesting and fun. The focus on many different skill sets, like blogging and theoretical analysis, but also on more practical research in the Digital Methods class, really gave me a better understanding in so many different fields. The last course about datavisualization was very extensive, especially working together with so many different people from different studies, but very interesting and it really opened my eyes about the possibilities of this kind of analysis when studying huge datasets.

At this point I can put MA in front of my name, which is a good feeling. I still however believe that I am just only starting to delve into the material and hopefully I will be able to continue exploring a field that has so many interesting aspects.
