Dear MA thesis writers,
Welcome back, after the long break.
If you have experienced “the break” anything like I did, then perhaps the term “break” seems not-quite-right. For me, the last month or so has been more like a fleeting interlude that presented many new challenges to face. When I think of each of you as I write this, I sincerely hope there was some chance for you all to replenish and recalibrate, to set new intentions and resolutions. That said, I think it is safe to say that 2021 seems somewhat similar to 2020, …at least at this early stage. But as always, I do have hope for better days to come.
One thing for certain is that working with each of you always brings me hope. I look forward to picking up where we left off, as you each continue your writing journey and further develop your MA thesis in Writing Studies. The term “thesis” comes from the Greek θέσις, meaning “something put forth”, and refers to an intellectual proposition. It is my genuine honor and pleasure to be your thinking partner as you continue the work, and further refine your project.
We will meet each Tuesday evening from 4:30-7:15 pm in the same Zoom room established in Fall 2020. See you all for the first meeting of the Spring 2021 semester on January 19th.
And, …my belated Happy New Year!
