Dissertation Proposin'

The time has come to complete my dissertation proposal. I can barely think about my essays for this term let alone my dissertation that is due in August. From all of the reading that I've done thus far this year, it was hard to even begin to narrow it down to a topic.

Ready for it? You're going to be thrilled...Water as a Motif in the African Diaspora. BAM! Mind blown, I'm sure. I will be focusing on Crossing the River by Caryl Phillips and The Lonely Londoners by Sam Selvon.

Due on August 19th, the dissertation has to be 15,000 words. As I've had it explained to me, this is my academic apprenticeship. A little cheesy, but I'll go with it. It makes it seem less foreboding.
