Very short blog this week.
So, this week has been pretty productive.
I always knew this would happen eventually.
The ‘approval of title’ form is done. I’m due to hand in my thesis on Friday 8th July. The countdown has begun!
I’ve had a productive week - I’ve deleted a whopping 13,000 words of thesis, and I just need to add a couple of extra references and draft the cursed conclusion, and then full draft 2.docx will be done.
Got my full draft back on Tuesday. No nasty surprises!
On Saturday, I spoke and listened at the above conference. All the papers (hopefully including mine!) were really interesting.
It’s taken me the best part of a week to write a 30-minute conference paper, and I’m really annoyed that it took so long.
I have reached that fabled stage of the PhD. The one where you’re sick and bored of the sight and existence of the thesis.
As promised last week, this week’s blog is about the ‘Storying the Past’ session me, Helen Rogers, and Simon Briercliffe ran at the Social History Society conference, concurrently with a Twitter conversation.
