Back in June, I published a brief post announcing the commencement of my graduate thesis research. Since then, I've periodically and vaguely mentioned my thesis work on this blog. Other than these brief blog postings, however, all of my research and writing has remained between myself and my infinitely patient advisor, Stephenie Young. It has been a delightfully private process. In an exciting new turn of events, I will be taking my thesis research for a test drive in a slightly more public arena on December 3rd during a research conversation hosted by Salem State's Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies. While it is intimidating to consider presenting my still-developing thesis ideas to colleagues and faculty, I am also very much looking forward to receiving feedback on my theories and research up to this point. I always benefit immensely from the guidance and perspectives of other scholars and educators.
Despite the fact that I feel somewhat unprepared to present my research, Salem State's marketing department has put this poster together. There's really no going back once a poster has been made.
Now the only thing left to do is ensure that there is actually some progress to present by December 3rd!
