About Carol B.

Carol B. is a survivor of "dissertation hell," a scary place where you will find many struggling doctoral students cowering before their computers, wondering where to start on the massive, wretched tome we call the dissertation.

"Welcome to Dissertation Hell" is a compilation of selected blog posts culled from The Hellish Handbasket blog, documenting--maybe I should say, lamenting?--the journey from student to scholar to Ph.D.

This illustrated ebook is for graduate students, and friends and family of graduate students, or anyone who has ever contemplated becoming a graduate student. Among the goofy yet snide drawings, nestled among the snarky chuckles, are some nuggets of wisdom to help the graduate student survive dissertation hell.

Carol B. is an artist, scholar, researcher, and blogger, living in Portland, Oregon.
