The Joys of Research
This plaid top was in heavy rotation for me last year and then I sort of forgot about it only to rediscover it in my closet. Paired with jeans, booties, and a leather jacket it was perfect for hitting the library in after work last week. I’m working on the final set of proofs for my forthcoming article (based on a chapter of my dissertation – the first piece of the project to be published!) and wanted to check a few things before I submitted the final draft. One of the individuals that I focus on in the article, Lucy Mervyn, was involved in a legal scuffle (it’s referenced in some of her correspondence that I was using for the article) and I’ve been trying for about three years (ah, the joys of research) to pin down the particulars of the case and thought I’d give it one more go before the submission for publication deadline.
