Last week, I finally finished my chapter one. And with it effectively my most important work in Montreal. It did take a few late nights and a lot of writing/re-writing. But it is over. I feel a little sense of regret since it is numerically only “one” chapter. However, the depth of the work displayed is clearly a result of my stay in Montreal. And I know my dissertation and even my future thinking on this topic has been strengthened by this exposure.

I will be doing a further reflection on this year gone bye, but this post is simply to exhale: that it is finally over.

Now all is left to do for this is to meet formally with my supervisor one last time and go through what needs to be done in future chapters, which will all be completed back in India.
