So, I haven't been blogging lately. I know, I've been busy. I am two weeks away from defending my proposal, and so that takes most of my time. I have four committee members, and that is a little tricky. But, things are moving.
I also am part of the group that is instrumental in establishing a subject pool for my department. The thing is, it is hard to do research for people who do lab-based linguistics. I have connections with the Psychology Department, but one goal that I and a few other people that are in my department want to accomplish is to establish our very own subject pool. We have tried, and there are some teething issues, that we are trying to iron out.
Anyway, I don't think there's much to blog about, so I will just leave you all with a rather interesting comic, as shown above, taken from PhDComics.com which nicely illustrates what inter-disciplinary research is about. I have experienced this first-hand. One caveat, however, is that unlike the pessimistic tone that the comic has, I do know where I belong.
