I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been prepping for my qualifying exams. I am very excited to announce after a two-week take home exam and two hour oral exam, I passed!
I am very thankful to my committee for being so wonderful throughout this process and being the best mentors I could ask for. They are honestly a dream team and I am so honored to be able to work with them. It is quite intimidating to give presentations to your entire works cited list!
I have also had the great opportunity to study under many other amazing Appalachian scholars. Alan Banks and Rob Weise at EKU have been constant champions. Pat Beaver, Sue Keefe, Bruce Stewart, Brad Nash, and Fred Hay at Appalachian State have also greatly influenced me over the past several years.

Now on to the summer, gardening, oral histories, and working on the dissertation!
