    Dissertation Submitted

    After two years, a lot of work, and a number of weeks towards the end that all coalesced into one and during which I only left home to return books to the library, I finally submitted my master's dissertation yesterday morning. It's been almost nine years of constant study to get to this stage (2 years adult access, 4 1/2 years BA, 2 years Mres; all part-time) but it's been worth it.

    Only one more step now to go, but I'm going to take a year out before thinking about submitting a PhD proposal.

    It's been a tough few years, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

    Congratulations, Sam. Having very recently beta'd a dissertation for someone doing their MA, I stand in awe of the standards expected.

    I wish you the best of luck with it, and hope you enjoy your year of freedom.

    Nice Sam! Congratulations!

    Also, if you don't mind me asking, what was the dissertation about? I'm sorry if it's already been said but I'm not aware...

    The amalgamation of the genres of post-apocalyptic and dystopian fiction via the theory of eco-criticism.

    In English: how the role and importance of nature and the natural world unites the genres over a period of time.
