Dissertation update #3 (or 13, I have lost count)
I of course have no plans to bore anyone with the details of my thesis, and there is rather an unspoken rule in academia that one should never say too much about one's dissertation before it is completed. But I do want to just share that during my four days in Skagafjorður, I had more "hell yes, I am so friggen right about this!!!" than I ever could have imagined. I actually started crying twice by how well the data I was finding fit with my hypothesis about why this particular saga was written. It was a really awesome experience, and I hope I can do it somewhat justice in the flow of my argument for UC Berkeley's Scandinavian Department!
