I'm in English; the project takes videogame strategies (mostly from glitching and speedrunning) and use them to talk about how we read various 20th-century novels.

Comps was pretty easily my favorite part of grad school. I don't actually mind the dissertating, really, but I do mind not knowing yet where my next year's worth of food and rent will come from.

Political science, specifically environmental politics.

That's a neat project. I'm not sure I understand the premise, could you tell me a bit more?

For me, my qualifying exam and prelims were the worst. Being ABD is great.

MSU scores four points, MTSU takes a panic time out, cue 15-minute commercial break. We come back, there's a foul, cue a 10-minute TV time out.

Think that Cal basket probably should've stayed on the board, though glad for anything that keeps Hawaii going and embarrasses the Pac12 a little more.

Thanks! And sure, though I have to make it into a much better book first.

For me, my qualifying exam and prelims were the worst. Being ABD is great.

Essentially I argue that videogame players have developed a range of approaches that can expand our ideas of what it means to read or interpret a text, especially complex texts like novels. So mostly I pair novels and games to consider questions like what it would mean to glitch a novel.

I'll stop derailing there but would be glad to talk by PM at any point.
