Ph.D Update: Art In Theory Revisited class almost finished!!!!

I am working on my quasi-independent study paper to finish out my semester at IDSVA. I have a first draft written and ready for a second round of editing. As a little sneak peek, my paper focuses on Postmodernism and Hegel, including essays by Burgin, Derrida,  Export,  Beuys and Spivak. I have indicated those specific essays below in bold. The remaining essays below are all of the readings I completed this semester. “Completed” is a little misleading since many of them were read several times over 😉

My semester ends on 12/14 but I plan on having that paper finished before I fly home on 12/9  😀
