Hey there Internet:
Mark your calendars: on November the 12th, 2008, I will stand in front of a jury of my peers (or worse, my professors) for my 502 seminar.
The seminar is a requirement for our department's PhD program (I think it's a quite common part of other schools, too); it's a 45 minute presentation on an area of research outside of your own, followed by 15 minutes of grilling from anyone who is interested enough to attend.
I am really excited to start preparing for it (and, um, just a titch nervous), but there's only one problem: I haven't picked my topic yet! I have to do some digging to see what sort of literature is out there that tickles my fancy, but here are some topics that I am curious about:
Talk to you later,
Joel Smelly Kelly
