A Peak into my Thesis entitled Crossing the Borders into Québécois Literature, Contemporary Anglo-Literature in Translation

The years of work required by a PhD are hard ones. And I'd like to share a few pages in honour of my being almost done. If you are up to reading some hard core theoretical translation studies material, hold on to your hats, ladies, because here it comes!

 

Please click on this link to access the PDF of 20 or so odd pages of pure reading pleasure for those in the know or simply the very curious.


Middle Density of a PhD Thesis

  Skyline 008

How thick should the middle be? Thickness in terms of pages is not the issue here. Thickness in terms of time is my problem. I feel like I'm wading in a forever ocean, with no shoreline in site. And I hate it. 

I have the perfect office, the perfect computer set-up, the best window, the most time ever... and it's all at a stand still. But isn't that typical?

I keep pushing the work sideways in the name of "errands", "children" and such. Can you imagine? 

Analyzing my texts. Now on 148. By Friday, I want to be on 200.
