Time for a new annotated bibliography and an example of what you discover when you throw something onto your reading log with the barest of glances.
I will likely just run down my research log document in the order in which I found the articles. This means a lot of them will probably not be hugely useful to my thesis as a great deal of time was spent just trying to figure out what I actually needed and what was related to my work I am doing. Over the coming weeks we should see me start to hone in on specific terms and ideas that lead to more and more strings of fruitful inquiry.
I don’t know if I’ll be posting these daily, or save up a few, or who knows what else. I know that I will be reading and annotating an article a day, 5 days a week, however. So expect to see a lot of these posts. Maybe they’ll prove useful to someone else?
Anyway, the podcast will be up this week. I also have a ko-fi account, so if you want to fuel my writing with coffee please consider buying me a cup.
One more note: Please ignore the lack of hanging indents on the MLA 8 citations on these posts as hanging indents seem to be a pain to do in WordPress.
Anyway, on with the show…
Welcome to Week Zero of The Weekly Thesis. If you’ve already perused the about page, you should have a good overview of the intent of this blog. If you refuse to read the about page, well, in the simplest terms I can muster, I describe this blog as such:
The Weekly Thesis is a blog where I will share my experience writing my M.A. thesis for the Literature and Writing Studies program at CSUSM.
