"A textual mentor like During the Dissertation can fill a void in writers' lives at a time of solitude, uncertainty, and anxiety. Keep it under your pillow." This volume is a sequel to Casanave's popular Before the Dissertation. Like that volume, this book is designed as a companion for doctoral dissertation writers of qualitative or mixed methods work in fields related to language education. It could also benefit those writing master's theses and those writing in other social science fields. It is meant to be consulted once the writing has begun--once students have settled on a topic, designed the project, or collected the data--because this is the time when they are analyzing, drafting, revising, polishing, and probably fretting, deleting, reconstructing, and even losing sleep. Also, like its predecessor, it is not designed to teach anyone how to write a dissertation as there are plenty of those available elsewhere. For most doctoral students, writing will happen at different stages of the project. Strategies for timing of these kinds of writing differ across students, and also across supervisors and advisers. If dissertation writers do not know by the time they start writing which strategies and issues pertain to them, this book can help them craft some approaches to suit their own personalities, preferred practices, and individual goals and visions, as well as help them figure out how dissertation writing might fit into the real-life intrusions of work and family. Issues covered in the book are: starting to write, envisioning the project as a whole, relationships with supervisors, perfectionism and other maladies, health, low- and high-IQ days, loneliness and isolation, distractions and interruptions, revising, and knowing when to stop.

“This very readable book is what every graduate student needs as they start their program. I wish my own MA and PhD students, during my 40 years of supervising, could have been demystified by having Casanave's 'textual mentor' as a companion." --Merrill Swain, Professor Emerita, OISE, University of Toronto “Before the Dissertation is an insightful, relevant, and accessible resource for doctoral students at any stage. Full of reflections and advice not found in other books, it serves as an indispensable guide for students and their supervisors. And the dispelling of myths is a superb idea!” --Robert Kohls, PhD candidate, University of Toronto Unlike other books on doctoral dissertation writing, Before the Dissertation is designed for students in the social sciences who are still in the early stages of doctoral study or for master's-level students considering entering doctoral programs. It addresses concerns pertinent to both first and second language users of English. It focuses on purposes for doctoral dissertation writing, topic choice and development, choosing and working with advisers, reading and informal writing, and quality-of-life issues. Faculty advisers who wish to reduce student attrition are also urged to read this book and to work with students at early stages of dissertation projects. Each of the nine chapters begins with a common myth about advanced academic work that is then dispelled. The chapters also pose questions that connect issues directly with individual readers so as to help them make sensible decisions about their doctoral work. The book could be used in graduate classes on issues in doctoral study or dissertation planning, and it can be a companion (textual mentor) to individual students who wish to reflect on their decision to pursue doctoral study/doctoral project. This book may also help instructors and advisers understand the kinds of obstacles faced by students that tend to impede or halt progress.

The Dissertation is one of the most demanding yet potentially most stimulating components of an architectural course. Properly done, it can be a valuable contribution not only to the students own learning development but also to the field of architecture as a whole. This book provides a complete guide to what to do, how to do it, when to do it, and the major pitfalls involved. This is a comprehensive guide to all that an architecture student might need to know about undertaking the dissertation, including new material on CD-ROM and online sources, web based research techniques, digital images, alternative imaging strategies, key architecture links, referencing and new dissertation extracts. It clearly navigates the student through the whole process of writing, preparing and submitting a dissertation, as well as suggesting what to do after the dissertation has been completed. Subjects covered include how to write a proposal, which research methodologies and techniques to adopt, which libraries and archives to utilize (including special architectural resources on the net), as well as how to structure, reference and illustrate the final submission. The authors also take architecture students into new terrain, suggesting alternative methods of undertaking dissertations, whether as video, prose writing, multimedia or other forms of expression. Furthermore, this guide includes new examples of exemplary dissertations of all kinds, as completed by students in Europe and North America so that the reader can clearly see the kinds of work which they themselves might choose to pursue. . Includes new extracts from first class UK and US dissertations . Offers advice on ways to organize and direct studies . Will help architecture students get better marks

Ph.D. Graduates Advice to students for Completing the Dissertation Be very organized and disciplined. Create a schedule much like a course syllabus outlining what you will be working on every week and approach the dissertation like it is a course. President of Clarion University, Dr. Karen M. Whitney Select a topic of great interest to you and others in the field. Focus all of your papers and research during the time that you are taking classes on that topic to the extent that you can. Select a chair who has an interest in your topic. Stay away from departmental or university politics. Find a buddy/partner who can help keep you on track with completion. Devote some time every week to research and writing. Seek help and expertise where you need it and focus laser-like on finishing. President Emeritus of Cuyahoga Community College, Dr. Jerry Sue Thornton Realize that no matter how hard you work, there is always going to be something imperfect about your dissertation. There is no perfect research study. When you realize that, it is easier to push forward and complete the project. Associate professor, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Dr. Mary Triana Do what your committee members tell you when it comes to choosing your dissertation topic and carrying out the study. If you say to your members that you want to study horses in Northeast Chicago and they tell you to study cats in Southwest Chicago, that's what you do. Associate Professor of Bentley University, Dr. Marcus Stewart Do something on the dissertation every day. Don't wait until you have a large block of time to work on the dissertation because you might never get that large block of time again, especially if you are teaching, raising a family or doing something else. President of University of Virginia, Dr. Teresa A. Sullivan
