Semester Success!

By • Dec 7th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

After these past few months, I have 20+ pages of my thesis completed! Plenty of work lies ahead for next semester, but I’ll be able to get a head start over winter break. My Alchemist section felt relatively (and oddly?) pain-free. I knew that section would serve as a building block for the rest of my thesis;…

A Rush of Participants at the Semester’s End

By • Dec 5th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

In this last week of classes, my calendar is adorned with different colors. Each one signifies a specific subject that needs attention—work, classes, fundraisers, etc. Sprinkled throughout is a theme of turquoise, a color that reminds me that the Healthy Beginnings Project will be seeing many family participants in the days ahead! Our flyer distribution in […]

Month Five: Continued Reading

By • Dec 3rd, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Throughout the semester I have been focusing on completing my bibliography. Due to the fact that my summer research required 24/7 ethnographic observation, and keeping up my fieldwork notes, I did not have much time to read books or articles on the subject over the summer. Thus, my first semester has involved rereading my field-notes…

November Update: Completing a Draft of my Film Chapter

By • Nov 29th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Since my October update, I have completed the rough draft for one of my chapters for my honors thesis.

La memoria histórica right outside of Madrid

By • Nov 13th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

After a quick four days in Torremocha de Jarama, I still cannot believe I was there, let alone that I am now back at William and Mary. It was a whirlwind of a trip, and I am glad to be writing this because everything happened so fast that I have yet to get a chance to […]
