Saturday, December 3
In class yesterday each of us had to briefly present his or her thesis, and it quickly became clear that mine
is both broader and more ambitious than most. As my preceptor noted, this could be a bad thing: I'm not writing a dissertation and if I try to write something like this I might not ever finish.
I don't like how squishy my current thesis is, but I'm more conflicted about its scope. It seems like there are a lot of theoretical questions at the wide level that need to be discussed before I start writing about some of the more narrow aspects of blogging, but maybe that's not where my focus should be. I'm a bit confused by all the short broadly-theorectical papers I'm finding, I can't imagine writing so many pages on a more narrow subject.
I need to talk to him about this. Soon, preferably, because not knowing what I'm looking for is going to hurt my annotations.
Alles Wird Gut
