Summary
"Our Dissertations, Ourselves: Shared Stories of Women's Dissertation Journeys engages readers in intimate stories from twenty women who wrote doctoral dissertations across nine disciplines--biology, English literature, modern languages, history, mathematics, music, nursing, philosophy, and social work. Their stories bring to light the common experiences, emotions, and challenges in the sometimes overwhelming process of writing of a dissertation amidst a full and complex life. Through dialogue with these women, the authors found that much of the dissertation journey is shaped by the challenges and transformations in the writer's own identity and relationships. The book is not designed to be a prescriptive "how to" book, but rather to help women writing dissertations, as well as their advisors, gain new understandings of the often isolating world of the dissertation writer and celebrate the courage and creativity that these twenty women demonstrate"--
