Progress and challenges

In the past month, I have summarized and written the bulk of my sections on Extras, The Adoration of Jenna Fox, and Feed. Although I wanted to be done with all of this by the end of February, I only have two books left to review, Ug…

The Icing on the Cake

In March of 2009, my family and I were interviewed by Storycorps.  The piece was included in a digital archive as part of the 9/11 memorial museum in NYC.  If you go there, clips of the conversation can be heard.  I recently reached out to the organization for an audio file of this interview.   […]

The Space Between

I feel like I’m really in a good place with regard to my creative component of my thesis.  I am loving the double-sided book idea Alan and I have been tossing around. Here’s what I’m thinking: Side A of my book,“Conversations With My Father,” begins with my death and travels backward to on 9/11.  The […]

Ideas Transforming

Throwing a few screenshots up to show how, when I write, I have conversations with myself in comment form. Every time I write, my thesis changes a little bit– which is excellent, and I learn a little more about what I think about my own ideas. Even if…

You Can’t Make This Stuff Up…

Talk about a serendipitous moment!!! I was looking for a letter that my father wrote me a long time ago so that I could add it to my “conversations.”  Instead, I found a letter he wrote to my mom while stationed in Vietnam.  I haven’t seen it in about 10 years or so at least. […]

God Is In the Details…

This week’s thesis journey was straight research. Alan’s comment on last week’s blog got me to thinking. Alan’s mention of Kurt Vonnegut reminded me of this book that I’ve had sitting on my shelf for the longest. Now, I never actually read it…

Putting the pieces together

Putting the pieces of the puzzle together! According to Alan’s handy countdown clock, I have 65 days until my thesis is due.  Yikes! (and yea!!) Alan also made some great suggestions for starting to flesh out a timeline for myself…goals and whatnot to get me to the end. Love it!  Spring break, I believe, begins […]

Griffia Website

Hello all!  This isn’t an actual blog post; I just needed to share this awesome artifact that’s going to make parts of my research so much easier:  the official Griffia website!  It’s still in the process of being completed/polished, but there’s already a wealth of information on it.  One can learn about the universe, the … Continue reading Griffia Website

Reading

This week, I’ve been working through How We Became Posthuman by N. Katherine Hayles, which is a key book in the field of posthumanism. Some of it relates to literature but, for the most part, it is a history of society’s interest in technologicall…
