The course supervisors continued their readings and seminars on Thursday while Friday gave us our first lick of the peer-review/critique-circle experience.
It was not the evisceration I expected but a valuable series of inputs and comments on the way we structured and conveyed meaning through our work.
I’ve been looking for this grade of sand-paper all my life.
Here are the last in my series of photos taken in and around the Rhodes University campus:
We spent most of Tuesday on a farm belonging to Robert Berold, one of the course supervisors. It is a generous space and when we weren’t being embraced by the heartening hospitality of our hosts, we filled our time sitting under the trees free-writing.
We left the farm early enough for me to still have a bit of time to walk through Grahamstown and take a few close-up pictures of the Cathedral.
There’s also a metal sculpture on campus that makes me feel like an unbound traveller, cycling into the Anywhere.
It was our first full day of readings and seminars, and as per my twitter/facebook updates, I couldn’t help but fizz with fangirl-adulation.
In this “The City of Saints”, the most interesting buildings to photograph often happen to be religious structures. The following pictures are of the Rhodes University Chapel of St Mary and All the Angels.
