Month 7: A Tangible Plan

Throughout January I have been outlining my thesis and the arguments I intend to support. I have selected examples from my ethnographic research in order to support these arguments with events I observed. I have now broken down the writing of my thesis into specific benchmarks throughout the semester. I hope to have a draft to my thesis adviser by March 13th, a tall but doable order.

My progress has been helped by my continued contact with the people I worked and lived with in Italy. The possibility of seeing them the summer after I graduate makes me want to complete my thesis to the best of my ability. I owe it to the people who took me into their lives and organizations to do my best.
