I’ve posted my research area exam proposal as a separate page here on the blog. Here. I’ll be taking the exam from September 16th to September 18th. 9am to 9am. Yikes. Then Comps on October 29th. Then the Specialized Literature Area exam on December 3rd.
I know that there are a few people who’ve asked to see this reading list, so I figured I would just share the whole thing. The idea with this exam is that we’re tested on our knowledge of the discourse within which our dissertaion is supposed to operate. That said, I would love to hear about what you see as ommissions, blind spots, irrelevancies, etc. I’ll be starting the dissertation process proper after the first of the year.
I hope to hear from some of you out there. I’ll be sure to return the favor, if you’re in a similar situation now or in the future.
