Yay! I just passed my dissertation defense!
 
You may call me "Doctor Wolfe" now, I guess. (No, you don't have to).

Just passed my dissertation defense! Other than some copyediting, no major revisions were requested. Once I turn it into the Graduate office next week, it'll be official and all that! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(sorry - this has controlled the last six years of my life. I just had to celebrate).

[My dissertation, if anyone cares, was on epideicticand deliberative rhetoric in nineteenth centiury America and their relationship to utopian fiction. There - that should put a stop to any questions about that.]

Celebrate with me. I don't drink, so have a drink for me (or whatever).

Okay, I'm calm now.

NOT!

Congratulations, man!

So, I can't tell from the subject of your dissertation what you're actually a doctor of... anthropology? American history? Political Science?

Anyway, congrats! :highfive:

Thanks. :highfive: back at ya!

It's a Ph.D. in English, technically. My specialty is Rhetoric and Writing, with a side glances at American Literature.

I'm off to bed. I suddenly feel very relaxed - it's like six years worth of stress just left my body or something . . . .

Congrats to you Ivan! :notworth:

I'll be beginning my PhD in American Politics next fall at Ohio State, so I'm in for the pain you just completed. Well done on getting that sucker defended!

I'm a high school English teacher (who happens to be in the Navy for quite some time...). I used to drill my students about poor logic and rhetoric in their writing. You seem to be some kind of authority on this. Any suggested reading for me? Start gentle...

PS: Fan-freaking-tastic. CONGRATULATIONS!! :super:

Congrats! So were you required to get a proficiency in German and French? It seems like every Ph.D. requires that, even in Math! Regardless, are you teaching at the university level and infecting impressionable minds with the joys of CrossFit?

Congratulations Ivan!

When I got my Masters degree I told my husband he had to call me "Master", but he didn't buy it. . . :D
