My wife defended her dissertation today. Hooray!

The title is Constructing a Moral Life: Literature and the Ordinary Moral Agent First Reader. Her advisers were George Wilson at UC Davis and Richard Bett at Hopkins.

She does not have a web page of her own, but there's a very brief bio page at Hopkins.

We drove to and from Baltimore today, dodging Hurricane Isabel. Hopkins was closed because of the hurricane, but the defense went on as scheduled. The hurricane did not cause much disruption. A large tree fell over during the defense and made a big crash. After the defense, Jerry Schneewind had everyone over for drinks; the power went out there shortly after we got arrived, so we relied on candle light.
