Thesis Update

February 18, 2009

I have finally made some progress on this whole finishing my thesis and actually graduating business.  I spent the better part of last year focusing on a thesis topic that a) wasn’t very interesting to me, 2) wasn’t very original, and d) wasn’t coming together in what would be a defensible thesis proposal so imagine my joy when I present my newly crafted thesis idea to my directing professor and he seems excited by the prospect of working on it with me.

I won’t go into the depths of my thesis, but I plan to explore walls as texts both in literature and popular culture.  My primary concern is that I may have to rely on gawker.com for a significant portion of my research. Would that forever disqualify me from the ranks of scholars?

    That sounds really exciting! And I wouldn’t worry too much about a lack of scholarship–that just leaves the field wild open for you!! My advisors said the biggest problem usually is leaning too heavily on previous critics and having nothing of your own to say. And look at you, you’ve already overcome that problem!

    I hope you’ll blog (at least a little) about your subject.
