The Academic Blogosophere: Moria Studies for her Exams

Moria in Excelsis is a great little blog from a PhD student working in the early modern period. She's smart and observant and thoughtful, and alternates between posts (like the one linked above) that cover real academic territory, those that detail the life of graduate work, and personal reflection.

The post I've linked to here is a good one to check out for those reading for booklist exams or those considering what a booklist exam process might look like. The process that she is detailing here is one where the reader not only has to consume and process large quantities of material, but also begin to manufacture some real knowledge out of that material.

    To the examinees: solidarity!
