PhD Planning


Yay for the PhD. What with health problems of uncertain magnitude and an uncertain living arrangement, I am so happy to have something else to think about and spend my energies on.

It is good to have some certainties. So, in that spirit, here is my plan for the PhD.

August-December 2008

* Develop routine of reading, notetaking and preliminary writing.

* Start research blog and post updates around once every 1-2 weeks.

* Build a reference database.

* Start to build a bookmark library of websites/blogs etc.

January-June 2009

* Write prelimary chapter (10,000 words) for first annual review.

* Start to plan online research methodology for the 2nd phase based upon reading in social movement theory, online research practice, and identified structure of feminist internet communities in Australia.

July 2009-July 2010

* Online research component into online communities and feminist discourse among young women in Australia.

* Continued reading and an increase in quality/output of writing.

July 2010- July 2011

* Wrap up field research.

* Write thesis for submission in July/August 2011
