The Dissertation

November 1, 2014 § Leave a comment

Dear loyal readers, I wanted to let you know that I finished and defended my dissertation this summer.  I was able to write about all of The Guild comics, as well as a bunch of fantastic examples of what I call women’s experimental autobiography, which includes graphic novels, self-help books, and prose memoir.  I hope to create a version of the dissertation that incorporates images at some point — all the best writing on comics incorporates images — but in the meantime, here’s the word document:


The day after I defended my dissertation, I moved to South Korea to teach English as a Foreign Language at a rural all-girls middle school, as well as two smaller co-ed schools in the same county.  I love learning about the students’ fandoms (mostly kpop and League of Legends), and exploring the beautiful countryside of Jeollanamdo.  I’m not sure what my next step is, but I know I’m excited about the future of women’s writing in every genre, all around the world.
