Revisited some of the literature that originally shaped my thinking for the dissertation. Wrote some background as to why I think this research project is timely and important. Outlined the preface. Ate a delectable lunch at Panera Bread.
Wrote the introduction of the introduction. Was humbled, outraged, and energized by a talk on women’s gendered and sexualized experiences of law enforcement and incarceration.
Forgot my camera. Wrote about methodological considerations when interviewing survivors of intimate partner violence and when conducting ethnographic research in work places. Formatted some appendices of sampling tables and semi-structured interview guides. Walked past a guy who found it totally reasonable to explain to me that the library’s bathroom door wouldn’t shut – while still sitting on the toilet.
