Me and my project 
16th-Mar-2006 06:42 pm
My name is Marisa. I'm a doctoral candidate in English, but I live in NYC and I'm a full time tenure track lecturer at a community college.

My prospectus has been accepted, and earlier this year I had 3 chapters drafted when my director decided to tell me that she hated two of them and wanted me to restructure and reorganize my dissertation. I feel largely thwarted by her and pretty bitter because she doesn't respond to emails or phone calls. In any case, I need to get this thing done because I'm tired of it hanging over my head.

I work on the 14th century English mystics and specifically I'm writing my dissertation on rhetorics of pain and desire.

Thanks for starting this community!

Hi Alix,

Thanks for starting this up. My biggest problem really has been communication with the diss director- unfortunatly she's the only one capable of directing at my school....so I'm really gonna also try to slam this out so I can defend the diss at the end of Fall semester. I recently just wrote chapter outlines for Chapters 2-5, so I"m waiting to hear a response from her so I know if I'm allowed to write those chapters or if she wants me to tweak them more.
