I passed my official dissertation proposal defense on Sept. 19. My committee and I are confident I can complete my dissertation next spring or summer. I’m scheduling my third round of interviews, pouring over construction agreements and design documents, and reviewing literature I haven’t read since my field prelim. Preparing for my proposal defense helped me renew my dissertation energy, and I’m excited about being back to work on this project. My dissertation is qualitative, and my analyses are iterative. So, to avoid getting myself into jams while writing and job hunting, I won’t be blogging much about my progress. I find that my theories, while in progress, are best kept within my lab group and research workshop.
