Interim Content: Readings from my Dissertation

I have a lot of things to sort out over the next couple of days. I have a few pre-written posts, but I'm going to hang on to them for the time being. I expect to be off of the proverbial blogging radar for a while as I try to regain some post-dissertation equilibrium. In the mean time, I thought some of you (and maybe some random blog visitors) might find some interest in some of the sources that I used in my dissertation. Here are half of the sources I used, with some of the more important ones highlighted in bold. I used a lot of sources to demonstrate various things, as I tend to do with anything I write; and I managed to cram a lot of content into the damned thing. It was a great capstone project that allowed me to demonstrate that I'd mastered the topics discussed over the preceding months. As far as this list goes, there are a number of podcasts in there as well, so if you're curious about topics relating to what I've been studying, be sure to add a couple of them to your playlist.
