Like Jill, I've received notice that my thesis is found worthy of public defense. This will take place on December 11th, at 9.15.
I haven't got the written nomination with the committee's comments yet, but the Faculty of Arts wrote me a letter saying it's on it's way. No I have to make a list of all the typos I have found (there are hundreds), a press release, a summary, get a photo of myself, negotiate the number of colour images, have it printed, write a 20-mintue presentation, and prepare for defense and trial lecture. And plan the doctoral dinner.
It's an incredible relief. I didn't really know how tense I have been about this, but when I got the message, I was immediately dead tired.
Hey, I even made it to the department's home page!
