I Have Officially Passed All Three PhD Exams

I received “a very very strong pass” on my third and final PhD exam! Even though I’ve been waiting to hear about the results of that exam, I have been formulating my dissertation topic. I picked up three bags of books from the library yesterday, and I hiked another bag back home today. I’m skimming ideas to see where I can find a space to drive my first piton.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.

  1. Congratulations Jason. Take a nice break before you start working on the dissertation.

  2. Jason Ellis says:

    Thanks, Masood! Yes, I took some time after finding out the results to build the new Lego Space Shuttle model that came out at the end of June. I will post pictures of it soon :-)

    Now, it’s back to reading . . .
