Default The Joys of Grad Student Final Papers

I'm a sociology masters student in the Northern Virginia area. Just finished my paper for my Globalization class trying to link globalization to poly. Proved to be an interesting and, at times, frustrating endeavor. Next up is a 20 page paper examining poly through feminist theory. Any suggestions people, getting to talk about this a bit would do wonders for my sanity.

I'm finding that plowing through what little academic work has been done on our community has been both enlightening and stressful given that it seems we don't do as well in bucking dominant discourses as we, or at least I, would hope sometimes.

What is your thesis statement? That might help for a start.

Currently my working research question for my thesis is, "How do Polyamorous individuals conceptualize of family?"

However, I'm not touching that til I finish this paper for feminist theory, which was more of what I was talking about when I threw that advice remark out. In general I'm looking for people to talk to and keep me sane as I write this thing that's due on Thursday.

So what is your thesis statement for the paper you are writing now?

Ah, mea culpa. No real thesis statement, it's a literature review with the general guideline of asking what feminist theory would have to say concerning polyamory.

interesting! What are you finding? Is there a certain era or type of feminism that you are referring to?
