Welcome to this new community, everyone! Please post an intro, what you are working in, that sort of thing.

My name is Alix, I'm ABD (duh) and i really need to make some significant progress on my diss!!
i still need to finish my prospectus. it's a long story, but i've basically had to start over. i need to finish my prospectus draft by the end of next week and i'd like to have a chapter draft or so done before the end of the school year. I'd like to have some form of a draft done by the end of summer.

i'm in a Comparative Literature program & the languages i'm working in for the diss are some Latin, but primarily Old French/Anglo-Norman, Middle High German, and Middle English. I am examining the depiction of Amazons in medieval retellings of classical tales, especiall the tales of Troy, Aeneas, and Alexander.

Although my advisors are great, i need more accountability. i would like for this to be a place where we can prod each other to write and read what the others write in order to offer advice.

what would you like this to be?

Hello, Alix.
My name is Artem. I made my diss four years ago (it was devoted to Guido delle Colonne's "Historia destructionis Troiae" and to some other medieval "trojan books"), so I really need contacts with the specialists in this field. To my regret, my own thesis and papers are in Russian, but it would be very well to speak with somebody who is interested in medieval versions of classical tales.
Thanks for your initiative here!
