As many of you know, I am in the final stages of completing my dissertation at the Claremont Graduate University. I thought I would have this done two weeks ago, but the process of editing footnotes is taking longer than I thought. It has to be done this semester, so you might say this is the "drop dead" term-if I don't get it done, it will never be done, and I can kiss off getting my Ph.D at Claremont.
So, Deo volente, this labor will be done, and will have been turned in by the 20th of February, 2009, which is the deadline for my turning in my "Intent to Receive a Degree" form. Again, if it doesn't happen this semester, it will not happen at all.
Regular blogging will commence once the dissertation is turned in to my committee.
