About a dissertation

I finished my MA course last year, and submitted my dissertation in September. It’s been prodded and poked and evaluated and checked for plagiarism and moral turpitude and probably verrucas, but I was waiting until I’d officially graduated to spread the picture on a wider screen. The current pandemic, of which you may have heard, has rather put paid to that, so sod it, here it is.

There are a couple of typos in there, and a few things I wish I’d expressed a little more cogently, but there we are. It’s about 15,000 words, so you should be able to get through it more quickly than you did The Irishman. Take care now.

I'm going to dive into this today and tomorrow. Maybe you'd consider putting together a summary or follow up guest post?

There's an abstract, of course, but a summary may be fun to try. Not all that much else to do right now.

I don't often run guest posts if you have any thoughts/reactions, do let me know and I'd be happy to post them.

Interesting and enjoyable. I may be back later to argue if the Great Lockdown goes on! Are you filling in time with a Ph.D?

Thank you, Roger. No plans for a doc at the moment but always up for an argument!
