Writing Up: The Material Culture of Composition
This is a view of my workspace here at home; I took the photo this evening, just as I finished writing up my latest (but not last, alas) chapter. You can see that I have a suitcase in which I keep most of my photocopies - this travels with me when I go back and forth from the UK and to my boyfriend's place. I have considered designing a special thesis suitcase, but my boyfriend wisely pointed out that PhD students wouldn't be able to afford it! And there are books and articles spilling on the floor, and my colourful post-it notes for bookmarking pages in said material are at my right. I have scribbled notes everywhere, and a glass of water to hand but not so close that I can knock it over. And Kleenex, because although my desk is in the basement (a walk-out basement, but still) it gets cold and I have a tendency to sneeze!
What does your workspace look like?
