On Tuesday I defended my dissertation and passed! The defense went about 2.5 hr and included many questions, some challenging, some confusing, and others quite fun to answer. In all, I thought it was a worthwhile experience but one I am glad to be done with!

I still have to do some revisions, but those should be fairly minor and totally achievable within my time frame to leave Knoxville. I also want to submit my last two chapters for peer review before I leave, which will be some overlapping work and work which I expect to keep me busy while I'm still in town. I think I'll save all that till next week.
