I recently completed a final draft of my dissertation, Un/Commonplaces: Redirecting Research and Curricula in Rhetoric and Writing Studies. The document is now in the hands of my dissertation director, Dr. Helen Foster, for a final review. I'm hoping any subsequent revisions and edits will be minor. . .
I'll have more to say about this project at another time (and will share it here, in its entirety), but I thought that I'd copy every word of the main document (around 50,000 of them), and paste them into Wordle for a quick snapshot of the terms and trajectories that comprise the dissertation research. My focus, borne out in this word cloud, is on writing and complex rhetorical knowledge work.
