URSP Student Donnelle Bodnarchuk Researches the Relations between Eastern Europe and Church During the Cold War
On a weekly basis my work varied depending on the work that needed to be done for my actual classes. But, I was doing something every week. For the first half of the semester, I solely did research. Each week I read various documents related to my project, ranging from Pope John Paul II to the Polish Crisis. As I would do that, I would analyze the documents trying to see how each were connected and what they were all trying to tell me. Like Dr. Kelly always told me, I let my sources guide me to my question. For the second half of the semester I wrote. Each week I would write here and there, and some days I would focus solely on my citations. The work of each week depended on the other work I had to do, but I was always managing some time to dedicate to my project. I learned this semester that I thoroughly enjoy historical research, which only makes me want to pursue my PhD even more than I already had.
