News: Jan 22, 2018

After a well performed defense of her thesis "Interpretations of old wood - Figuring mid-twelfth century church architecture", which occurred Friday afternoon the 15th of December 2017, Kristina Linscott got her Ph.D. in Conservation. The opponent at the disputation was Associate Professor Alessandro Camiz, Department of Architecture, Girne American University, Karaoglanoglu, Kyrenia, Turkey.

A lot of people attended the Auditorium in Geovetarcentrum at the University of Gothenburg when Kristina Linscott defended her thesis. The opponent Professor Alessandro Camiz opened up by giving a short summary of the thesis, followed by his thoughtfully prepared questions for Kristina Linscott. In return, this gave Kristina Linscott the opportunity to go into some of the details in her argumentation and conclusions.

In the last part of the dissertation the audience and the members of the examination committee had the opportunity to comment and ask questions. When the session ended the committee gathered in a separate room to make their final decision. Everyone else gathered for refreshments, while waiting for the committee to announce their final decision.

It had already became dark outside when the examination committee announced, to everyone’s joy and especially for Kristina Linscott, her as a Ph.D in Conservation. Which of course was celebrated and applauded by all the attendances.
