At the CEW, I love the opportunity to hear about other students' research and interests. Working with students on research papers, projects, and dissertations on topics from Eurovision, titanium implants, and Buffalo's urban planning, I've been able to expand my own knowledge significantly beyond my own research focus of Roman archaeology. Though these topics may not directly relate to my own field of study, talking through every part of the process, from planning to sources to clearly explaining complex processes has helped my own methods for approaching my dissertation.  We're all in school to learn, and I consider myself very lucky to be able to learn from my consultants as we tackle the daunting task of writing.
