I am a postgraduate student at the University of Stirling in Bonnie Scotland, hoping to study abroad in the near future. My particular area of interest is in the history of Revolution and Counterrevolution, in particular the study of dissent in opposition in Eastern and Central Europe, focusing primarily on the former German Democratic Republic. My current thesis focuses on ideology (or lack thereof) of the dissident and opposition forces within the East German state, and the study of 'every day history' relating to the collapse of the SED dictatorship. In addition I am interested in the study of dissent and opposition, revolutionary theory, civil societies and human rights in a global and contemporary context, as well as in an historical and European one. I love life, tend to be a bleeding heart democratic socialist, and am hopeless at anything related to numbers.
History, education, human rights and in particular a global abolition of the death penalty.
That every heart is a revolutionary cell. That all humans have the capacity for compassion and self-sacrifice and that one person has the ability to change a great many things.
Anything relating to dissent, opposition, human rights, history, politics, civil society, dictatorship, religion, the death penalty, social and political history.
Art, something I loved at school but fell out of as I got older.
