Update on dissert process: Committee meeting on 6/8 went well!

The meeting with my committee was very productive - comments were provided, clarified and I have a plan for making revisions to the document. Looks like I can defend during the first week of September; could have been earlier, but the anthro dept won't be back until after the fall term starts, so...in the meantime, PLENTY to do!

As it stands I'll be in Michigan until 6/14, then back in Florida until 6/26, back to Michigan until I get a firm defense date. It's just easier to get…

The process continues: back to Michigan...

It's been really nice to be home for a few weeks; things seems almost "normal." On Friday I meet with my committee to hear comments on the complete draft of my dissertation. I should know after that meeting whether I'll be able to defend by the end of the summer term (7/31).

Lots of work and lots of changes ahead!

Yes, when I look at my page, you are there as one of my "Friends" (and thanks!). I couldn't find any other Wayne people - do you know what's up? I need to get a picture on this site - I look like a bald shadow!

Hi Christine - I was glad to find you on here. Best of luck this friday!

Hi, Laurie - don't know what's up with the Wayne people. I invited both Julia and Amy Goldmacher and neither of them got back to me. I'll see them both during the next week, so I'll nudge them to sign on.

Good - glad that worked! Do I need to invite you to befriend me??

Thanks, all went well! I have some changes to make, but basically got the green light to defend first week of Sept. !

hello! i didn't get a chance to catch up with you after the birds of a feather session– too many wonderful people and way too many stimulating conversations. was there anything in particular you wanted to discuss? i'm really curious to hear more about your current and upcoming projects, as it sounds like we have very similar interests.

I've been reading your work since I began my applied anthropology program at San Diego State University. I'm graduating now, and it looks like you are as well. Congrats!

hi christine,

thanks for the note. yes, i am fairly familiar with leed accreditation. what aspect are you specifically working on? there have been some controversy about it lately from MA students regarding the point system, but i would be interested to know what you are referring to exactly. for example, in the building we completed, we chose not to implement a traditional green roof considering the arid region we are in, so we opted for a more appropriate response utilizing gravel-ballasted roofs, which brought into question the universality of leed standards.

arizona state is actually home to the global institute of sustainability (i mentioned we retrofitted the building to accommodate them last semester, ranging from complete structural to programmatical issues) which houses the school of sustainability, the first to offer a graduate degree in the field internationally. you might want to check it out if it would be helpful. feel free to let me know how i can be of help.

best regards,
