53 degrees is about writing, reading for and doing a PhD. I’m enrolled in a PhD programme on a part-time basis at the Department of Geography in NUI Maynooth and this blog is about that experience. My name is Eoin O’Mahony, I am in my thirties and if you want to contact me about the research (Marian statues, pilgrimage in Ireland & Spain and primary schooling) you can contact me at:
My Ignite #6 slides are available here as a PDF.
53 degrees refers to the latitude of Dublin, Ireland north of the equator. I live in Dublin. Dublin’s latitude is 53.34 degrees north of the equator and 6.27 degrees west of the prime meridian. This is not a geography blog about latitude, mountains or flags of the world.
It is about the latitude I may need from those around me in completing this degree. It’s about the latitude I may need from my supervisors in thinking about the thesis I am writing. It is about discovering new ideas and experiences.
