Sharon Kelly, ABD

Today was the oral portion of Sharon Kelly's booklist exam, and the conversation between Sharon and her committee (Ryan Claycomb, Brian Jara from Women's and Gender Studies, John Lamb, Lisa Weihman, and yours truly as Chair) covered both the spiritual and material aspects of life in Victorian London, from table-turning to green carnations.

Throughout, Sharon responded to the barrage of questions with aplomb and good humor. As a result, the Tenants are very happy to be able to congratulate Sharon on passing her Qualifying Exam for Doctoral Candidacy, which officially makes her ABD. If you check a Victorian etiquette book, the appropriate gift for this is paper.
