I have plans!

By • Aug 24th, 2016 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research, Thesis

Stop the show, guys.  I have a thesis and an outline.  It’s actually working.  (OK I know that might be a pretty basic accomplishment, but I spent a whole lot of time this summer wracking my brains to figure out how to say something different from “she’s a woman so she writes about women and…

I am happy to announce that my study has reached fifteen participants! Though this number may not seem worthy of that much excitement, trust me, it is. As I mentioned in one of my earlier blog posts, the population I am trying to reach for participation in my honors thesis is one that is hard…

Ready to go into the field

By • Jun 5th, 2013 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research, Thesis

I leave for Utah tomorrow to start fieldwork, and I’m so excited! We’ll be there for almost a month mapping the area and collecting data for my thesis. I won’t have access to Internet (we’ll be camping for the rest of June), so this will be the last time you’ll hear from me until July.…
