Research so far


I’ve not written much on my blog lately because I’m feeling the looming deadline for the dissertation draft. I’m hoping to gain some valuable feedback when we present our work in progress seminars and also I thought it might be useful to make a list of all material I have consulted so far. I won’t be using all of it but I would like to be able to look back and consult it if needed, “…in no particular order” ;
