Hi! Just a little late-night update on my final papers...
So yesterday I submitted my 2nd grad paper on the Lizzie Bennet Diaries - I still can't believe they let me do that. I was writing about it for a film class, applying theories of form, gender, and reception. It seemed a bit messy even when I turned it in, but it did give me some ideas I want to expand into my thesis project :)
I'm now working on a really interesting paper going in all sorts of crazy directions: Victorian standardization of time, Hesiod's socieconomic perspective in Works and Days, postcolonial theory, Hamlet, a bit of Foucault, and Odysseus's sirens... I told my brother: "Right now they're like a bunch of sheep running in different directions and I need to become Babe! #BahRamEwe" I'm about 1/3 of the way there and it is pretty fun. The text I'm working with is also a favorite--"The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock."
But now I should get some rest so I can scribble out some more good ideas tomorrow. Bonne nuit!
