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 it's not yet clear to others, I see the strands beginning to take form and it makes me very happy.




On a side note, yes it is a Saturday night, and yes I am doing work. My friends and my fiance will be quite happy when this is all over, because "you're always working, you're never around." Oops.

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 technologically advanced humanity. I must admit, some of it is very dry, but it is fascinating and I'm happy to be reading the book in the field that all of the other books and articles cite. Next on my reading list is Our Posthuman Future by Francis Fukuyama.

The next portion of my thesis that I hope to knock off is the Lit Review portion-- the sooner the better!

Oops I forgot to blog last week....

So here's catching up. Last week, I wrote a portion of my Methods section and sent it to Alan, who gave me helpful feedback. I haven't updated it yet because I've been working on other stuff (see next blog). But anyway, here's a link to the Methods section in progress:
