Academic Status Update

Many graduate students are a part of a largely digital generation and are used to “status updates.”  For the sake of developing community here at the CFH Grad Student blog, it would be great if we could share a quick “status update.”  Just give us a sentence or two in the comments section about where you are (physically and progressively) in your program.

It only takes a minute!  You can post as “anonymous,” but tell us who you really are in your comment.

I’ll get us started.

I’m Greg Jones, fifth year PhD student at Kent State, and I’m currently editing my dissertation on Civil War soldiers in southeastern Ohio.  I am an adjunct history professor at Kent State and Geneva College, teaching a mix of intro and upper division courses.

Alright everyone… let’s hear the update!

    I’m late to the ballgame, but…

    Mary Sanders, 2nd year PhD student at Oklahoma State University, studying 20th-century U.S. religion, especially how institutions respond to terrorism. I’m recovering from the AHA and trying to pretend that the semester hasn’t started yet, even though I just picked up a paper from a prof with comments in two different colors of ink.
