So, as my title says, I have read some things and did some thinking while reading. This past week I picked up an article that Dr. Conyers (head of Africana Studies here at Kean) had given me when I met with him. The piece was about the images of black women in Afro-American poetry and is […]
This is going to be a bit shorter of a blog than usual, as only a few significant things have happened in the past week. I have been able to locate, curate, and analyze a lot more sources, and I am feeling pretty jazzed about that. My white whale, however, continues to elude me. Moby … Continue reading Looking for Sources in All the Right Places →
So, with everything going on in my life right now, I can’t say I feel like I have made much progress since my last blog post. I feel like I am literally taking life on a day-to-day basis. Whatever is in my sight in the moment gets my attention, and whatever is outside of my […]
Although I’m not quite ready to begin drafting any of the fictitious “conversations” with my father, I have been thinking about what they might sound like. What I might say to him. And he to me. The thought of spending countless hours “interacting” with my father again (even in an imagined space) is exciting. And […]
Hello again, readers. Let me start this blog off by saying that I am so grateful for the responses generated by last week’s post! I received so many helpful ideas via tweet, comment, and email, and I am floored by the helpfulness of this community.
In the past week, I’ve gathered excellent resources for my project, and I’m going to list some of them here. First and foremost, I’m going to share my incredibly old-fashioned web of ideas that I made a few weeks ago, and which has been slowly growing in size.

This web actually helped me a great deal. I’m a huge pen-and-paper fan, and it helps me to compile all of my ideas into one place. That being said, last class we were introduced to a few compilation tools that I have already found to be helpful.
Happy Wednesday everyone!So, today I come to the research and Digital Humanities communities looking for help/direction with my thesis work. As you can learn from my first post, I have an idea of what I would like to do with my thesis. To recap:I still…
Hello, readers. I know I said I was going to talk about the economic features of CS (this is the abbreviation I’ll be using from here on out for “closed species”) communities in my next blog post, but I’m sorry to say that’s not going to happen today. I feel like I still need to … Continue reading Grab Bag(bean?) →
“You’re just falling into something different, with a new capacity to be beautiful.” -William C. Hannan After having a phone conversation with my professor, I felt like I definitely had a clear sense of the path that I was in, or at least, wanted to be in with my thesis. I was definitely pumped! The […]
SourceI can’t believe the summer flew by so quickly, but I’m glad to be entering the start of my thesis work, and the beginning of my last year in my Masters degree journey! Hello all, you know me but, if you’re reading this and you don’t know me, my n…
In the required entrance essay to Kean’s Master’s program I rambled on about how I always thought of myself as a sort of “Jack of all trades” and that completing this degree would qualify me as a “Master of one…” So, here I am. The beginning of the end of my journey. I’m not surprised […]
