Topic!

So I think I have a firm, specific PhD topic! I shall confirm when I see my supervisor in person on Wednesday (and I finally AM meeting her in person), but both supervisor and co-supervisor said that it looked good in email form, so fingers crossed. If all is well, I shall be looking at female agency in the discharge process from Victorian asylums, 1880-1910. Ish. One of the reasons I've chosen this topic is that it's extremely scaleable, and the dates at the moment are only there as a guideline to the records I'm going to be looking at. I'll work out a final date range once I have a better idea of what's on file; I want to include the most useful records.

I have been creating a database (and learning how to use Access in the process) ready to house all the different sets of demographic information contained in the various case-records. I don't know what of that I'll end up using, but better to deal with these things once, instead of having to endlessly re-copy material and spending ten times as much time at PROV as I really need to.

In other news, E's flat sold on Saturday, so it's on to the next step of investigating a home loan. This is exceedingly adult for someone like myself who is permanently stuck at a maturity of about thirteen.
