I am Viktória Kóczián, a new intern at WCRC, a teacher of English and Hungarian language and literature and an ordained minister of the Reformed Church in Hungary. I earned my master’s degrees at the Debrecen University, the University of Edinburgh and the Debrecen Reformed Theological University. Currently, I am also working on my PhD in Jewish mysticism of the Middle Ages.
This is my second time in Switzerland, since I did research in the Institute of Jewish Studies at the Theological Faculty of Bern for a couple of months in the Summer of 2011. Although living in Bern and in Geneva feels like living in two different countries, my addiction to Swiss cheese and chocolate seems not to change.
My French is limited to ‘prochain arret’ at the moment, so I am really looking forward to my French classes.
Having spent only three days in the office, I am at the beginning of this almost a year of learning and working experience. As part of my assignments, I am starting to get familiar with the work of the Network of Theologians. I spent my first weekend reading Calvin’s Institutes – what could be a better start in Geneva?
