The blogging’s been a little light of late. I’m knee-deep in finishing my dissertation prospectus (i.e., half of it). The deadline is next week. I’ll defend it on March 19 followed by a full dissertation defense on April 23. I’ve done much of the work on the dissertation as part of my coursework — hence, the speedy finish.

If all that goes well, I’ll have a PhD in early May. What next? As many of you already know, I plan to be working as a journalism professor somewhere in the Middle East this fall.

Stay tuned…
