In all its glory, here is our ¡Defenestrate! blog. We are all PhD candidates in the English Department at the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities. Although we each research in vastly different areas, we come together to support and uphold each other in a process that can be both isolating and overwhelming.
Beginning in the fall of 2006, ¡Defenestrate! has met weekly for about an hour to talk about our goals—big and small—as we work towards completing our dissertations. This blog is a sort of experiment to augment less frequent meetings during the summer of 2007. Here we shall post the progress we have made, as well as the problems we have encountered, and document our regular goals and their achievement.
Open the window, or you risk broken glass. ¡Defenestrate! has entered the cybersphere.
