Am I getting closer to an actual thesis?

By • Oct 31st, 2008 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research, Uncategorized

I went to Swem the last two nights and tried to really hash out what I thought I was going to focus my thesis on. While I thought some of Monica Green’s scholarship in women and literacy was interesting, it focused on Germany, France and England, not Spain. Plus, there are a lot of difficulties […]

That’s The Word from Stephen Colbert.

And while I feel like I have been constantly switching ideas for the past six months,  I […]

After class last week, I started thinking about what gaps in the research I could be filling in with my own work.

In 10th grade I decided on the spur of the moment to attend a student production of a play I knew nothing about, written by an author I’d never heard of; I went, and I fell in love with Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia.

Wow, week nine already. Unfortunately, I didn’t get half as much done as I’d have liked last week, as the week got filled up with tests and some unforeseen trouble. I had planned to make up some time last weekend, but instead spent about 10 hours of it in a car and the rest running […]
