How to Survive the Dissertation Process

A few closing thoughts: I am a historian. While this advice was written primarily for those in the humanities and social sciences, I hope some of it will be relevant to those working in other fields. I also believe that greater transparency in the graduate school process improves the entire experience for everyone involved, and I have written this with a desire to help those who are currently grad students. To that end, I invite others to weigh in with constructive advice for surviving the dissertation long haul. I offer thanks and gratitude to Amy Johnson for inspiring this essay, and to my writing group — Mary Brazelton, David Singerman, and Emily Wanderer — for making the time to read and offer suggestions on this (and so much else).
