You can make all sorts of cool stuff with science

You can make all sorts of cool stuff with science

Thanks to The Thesis Whisperer (again) for a great post on the perils of the interdisciplinary thesis.

It is s struggle to keep your thesis on track when you are drawing from a very different discipline – like my creative writing one that is full of scientific theory.

I am trying to overcome these problems by constantly reminding myself who my audience is – creative writers. Which means my emphasis is on considering the writer, and the science is used as support for my arguments.

The science is pretty dense, so I am simplifying it for my thesis discussion, but supplying a further reading list for those who would like to pursue these lines in more detail.
