Apparently its March already.
This means I have less than a month to finish researching and writing my first conference paper of the year.
The abstract was submitted months ago and I did start my research in between submission and viva but prepping for viva and doing corrections have completely distracted me from actually fleshing out this paper – an especially annoying scenario since I am determined that it will form the basis of something to be submitted for publication. I really want to get some of my work actually out into the world and can’t keep going over the thesis material even if I do publish it eventually..So tonight as a way of treating myself for doing lots of work on the thesis I am going to go back over some of my research and find some more material. I am also going to commit over the course of this week to making a skeleton slide outline to work round.
- Susan Cooper uses Classical knowledge to signify education and to a lesser extent superiority.
- Section on Romans in Britain emphasises series themes of displacement, duty and connection to one’s land
- Contrast practical/factual/educational Classics with mythic/emotional Celtic & Saxon imagery
- Is this a recognisable trend in children’s fantasy?
- Is this a trend in 50s/60s/70s lit.?
Gonna do me some real research.. gonna enjoy it!
