The Upshot

All of which* is to say that the act of submitting a blog as an MFA thesis is perhaps the most important aspect of the project. The fact of it; the publication of that fact; and the form in which the text (and its medium) interacts with the gate-keeping institution - i.e., how it is registered and diplomaed (certified as art).

Has anyone ever written a blog as an MFA thesis? Not that I know of. Could Jen's be the first??

Wouldn't it be exciting if hers were the first blog submitted as thesis?

You bet! . . . all the more reason to theorize the project!

Ohhh, I'd love to be the first, but surely that isn't the case. I'm always late to the party. I watch addictive television series after they are canceled.

Maybe the MLA would know.
