Re: Yay! I just passed my dissertation defense!

What would you do in the military with a PhD in literature?

Hope the teaching works out. When you write, would they be more scholarly books, geared around your dissertation and did you publish in academic journals?

I'll write anything and everything I can. Mostly scholarly stuff, if I get a college level job. I have a few articles being looked at by journals right now. Academic publishing is an very slow process, though.

I don't want to post my whole CV here, but I have had some publications in academic sources. My two most recently published essays were popular in orientation, though. You can find them in this book. (wfs)

Thanks for the recommendation! I'll definitely look into it. Although, the kids will probably wince at the mere mentioning of Aristotle.
