Academia, here I come!


This is not a knitting post: it's better! I am officially into graduate school! I'm going to be getting my Ph.D. in English, with a concentration in Medieval literature. That's right -- I'll be spending a lot of time in the next few years with this guy.

Okay, it is a knitting post: perhaps the best thing about this program is its proximity to my favorite yarn shop. School Products will be doing some hot business next year, let me tell you!

Congratulations! I did a whole lot of Middle High German literature, it was fun. Never got around to a lot of the English stuff, though, because I got stuck on the Germans and the French.
Enjoy Chaucer!

I'm thinking of going back to grad school. I don't want to finish my dissertation in history. Wrong field for me. But if everything works out, I'll be heading back in a general academia-like direction next year!

Medieval literature! That sounds like fun.

You have two posts in mistakes? Only two? My whole blog would be in there.

Thanks, Carrie! I think the reason I have two posts in mistakes has more to do with the newness of my blog than with my knitting accuracy, though. Don't worry... a lot more will accumulate.

When I was in a PhD program, one of the professors told me that Medievalists were the nicest academics, because their literature was so positive.

She sniffed that the modernists were all unhappy and cynical. . .

Of course I concentrated in 20th century novels!
