It's been a busy but productive week.
Yesterday I finished the last revisions and edits on the actual dissertation prospectus and sent it off to all of my committee members.
My defense date is set, so I made sure to invite a few friends and professors who while not on my committee have been mentors to me.
And of course, because it's me, I did it this way, posting on Facebook and Twitter.
Once the prospectus was finished and sent off (I of course found a typo) I started working on the actual presentation. My understanding is that I'll present/walk through the prospectus for 20 minutes or so, and then there's questioning by the committee.
I feel good about having this all finished because I have some serious work to do over Spring Break on the actual #DevilDiss, and now that this is finished I can focus on those things confident that this is ready to go when we're back.
I welcome any advise or notes either on the actual content (see a work I absolutely missed and need to include?) or on presenting myself and/or my work at the actual defense. I've never seen a dissertation prospectus defense so I'm not really sure what the format, procedures are, so welcome any information on that.
