Big News!

 
The Six Wives of Henry VIII. Parliament, Westminster.

It is with great excitement that I announce to BeingBess readers that, after a lot of hard work and sacrifice, I have earned my Master of Arts in History! I did the defense of my thesis on October 3rd and passed, allowing me to graduate this semester. I have concentrated on the medieval through the Elizabethan eras in my studies, with a special focus on the history of royal and noble women. My hope is that my degree will help me as I publish, and also in getting a new job. Thank you for being patient with the fact that during the duration of my studies, I made less frequent posts on the blog and the Facebook page.

Now that my studies are over, I am in the process of fulfilling my lifelong dream and moving to England! I am looking for jobs in English museums, archives and universities. Of course, BeingBess will continue, and as always, I thank you for your support!
