As I wrote last week, the lecturer asked the class to present their research plan. Two groups which in Postcolonial and Feminism areas presented their plan this week. I choose Feminism as my interest of research and of course I presented my plan. My research plan is to compare a character in novel and film adaptation. It is a little rough but I am really excited to finish this. Wish me luck J
