Continuing to Update

By • Nov 30th, 2008 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Alright, So, as I said, I’ve been falling a little behind just due to end-of-the-semester work, but I’m catching up again now. I’ve posted once on R&G are Dead, but I still have much more to say, so another post will most likely follow. I’ll be finishing up my syllabus this week by tackling a […]

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

By • Nov 30th, 2008 • Category: Hamlet, Honors Thesis, language, Research, Shakespeare

What with the holidays and end-of-the-semester work loads, it’s been some time since I updated on my reading – but I’m back on track, and at long last, I’ve arrived at the play that started it all, both for Stoppard and for me: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. Most people with any knowledge of Stoppard […]

In the trenches

By • Nov 29th, 2008 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

I’m about halfway through the introduction (I decided to go straight to prose), and am looking for a break from the books. Nobody’s on Facebook on a Saturday night, so I’ve turned to updating my blog. Ha. People have cautioned against writing the introduction first, but I felt adrift without that literature review under my […]

Sherrie Levine’s Attack on Rietveld

By • Nov 27th, 2008 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

by Peter Zimmerman Catherine Ingraham’s essay that accompanies the 1999 Sherrie Levine / Joost van Oss collaborative exhibition at the Paula Cooper Gallery in New York City highlights three major facets of their collaborative works of appropriation. However, instead of being merely commentaries on the originals by Gerrit Rietveld, Levine and Oss re-write, and thereby […]

I’ll be Thankful when this chapter is done :-)

By • Nov 27th, 2008 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Have been finishing Upton, Another City and combing through a 1915 anecdotal history of public accommodations in NYC (W. Harrison Bayles, Old Taverns of New York). That Swem has this book in the stacks warms my soul; that the book is non-circulating chills it again. I plan to have solid eight- to ten-page outlines of […]

I dub thee, platypus!

By • Nov 25th, 2008 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

I wasn’t planning on posting today, but I just got the summary of my neurochem class’s feedback on my presentation, and this one comment is too funny not to share.
So, for some background, I wrote a paper on the phylogenetic history of acetylcholine, which I later presented to a neurochemistry class. Now, there really […]



Week 13?

By • Nov 25th, 2008 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Real short post this week. – Swamped with papers and Thanksgiving approaching. – Turned in my introduction to my professor late last week. Hopefully there’s some good edits to be had. – No real thesis work until after Thanksgiving break. See you all next Monday!



I know the truth in your smile

By • Nov 24th, 2008 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

I met Erika and Greg a few days ago, who tell me that talking to me is a little odd because people do not say “sir” or “ma’am” in California.  Very nice people, both of them.  They’ve just finished writing a new intro psych textbook, which, from what I could garner from our short time […]



Tangible progress

By • Nov 24th, 2008 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

So, after a several day crisis about whether I should even be doing a thesis, I had a meeting with my advisor. Thank goodness. She made everything feel very manageable, and essentially gave me the outline for my first chapter. I had been frustrated because of the amount of material – I wasn’t sure how […]
