Dr. Allen and I have been in Australia for a week now, and it has been a whirlwind!   We left Williamsburg on Sunday December 3rd at 7AM and reached Orpheus Island where we’re conducting our research Tuesday December 5th at 7PM ET. (Or something like that; it’s tough to keep track of time here […]

November in a Blur

By • Dec 5th, 2017 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Oh wow, how is it December already? November went by in an absolute blur of readings and movies. I counted today and realized I’ve read 20 books so far for this thesis! Most of those I’ve read this semester alone. But I’m so close to being done with my research. I have 3 books, 4…

Oh my goodness, I cannot believe December is already upon us! I have two more big experiments to wrap up before the end of the semester, and then I’ll head into a month of intensive writing over winter break! Last time I posted, I mentioned that I was doing an experiment that involved crossing a…

In five short days, my project will reach its culmination when I finally have my thesis defense! I cannot believe I have actually reached the end of my two semesters with William Carlos Williams.

Out to Sea

By • Dec 1st, 2017 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

I keep finding new sources. Which is great. They are super fascinating. I’m reading 19th century Howells novel to gain insight to a *true* American Self-Made Man.
