The weekly classes are very interesting and allow me to remind myself how many interesting angles of thinking there are beyond the research directions I focus on.
The weekly sharing class also gave me the idea of attending public lectures at Northumbria University outside of school, which gave me more opportunities to be exposed to how others think and study cities. For example, although gender-friendliness itself is a resistance to male hegemony, it will also become hegemony under a new label. This reflection has brought great help to my study.
The process of participating in blog production has exposed me to many different perspectives to think and research. Think about problems from a more divergent perspective. In the process, you can actively choose to go more in-depth on some topics or return to the topic when appropriate. This is all due to a relatively free discussion environment.
