Chapter Three…

…is done. Or, at least as done as it is going to be for right now. I still have the feeling that it wanders a bit, and not all the arguments are as clear as I would like them to be. The footnotes need some fine-tuning.

That said, I think the best thing for me to do at this point is to let my committee have a peek at this chapter while I work on Chapter Four. I can take another look at Three in a month or so. Also, the work I’ve done on this chapter has prompted me to re-outline most of the dissertation; I have a much better idea where I’m going now than I did a month ago.

(But it isn’t about the numbers, right?)
