About my PhD

My thesis is The Public Perceptions and Personal Experience of Only Children, c. 1850-1950 and took just under five years, which was two years longer than planned. The first three years were suspiciously easy, the unexpected fourth year was not, and I spent most of the fifth year waiting for the wheels of bureaucracy to turn.

I’m very slowly cleaning up my old posts so that they show up properly on my ‘forever’ blog (it’s happening so slowly because it’s an incredibly tedious task). I’m weeding out unnecessary images (mostly because I can’t be bothered to copy everything into my images folder) and reblogs (don’t really work as a concept outside of Tumblr).
