Well, my advisor says that most dissertation proposals are approved about six months after oral exams. For me, that would be about now, and that isn’t the speed I’m moving.
So now, I start in earnest, with the relief of a break in my crazy work load that will last the next three months. And I start easy, by writing the bibliography and reading the primary texts. Some of which are still on order from France. They’ll get here eventually, right?
