Later this week I’ll be one of the faculty presenters for Mason’s PhD Research Morning. The aim of Research Morning is to provide PhD students with tips and tools for navigating the proposal and dissertation stages of the program, and to begin thinking beyond the dissertation. My short talk is on “Writing Your Dissertation.”  January 29, 11:15 in Research Hall.
