Thread: Turning a chapter into the whole thesis (whilst half-way through PhD?)

Hi everyone!

I'm a second-year PhD student in the UK. I'm funded for three years in total.

My question is more or less what I've said in the title - I'm in the process of redrafting the first chapter of my PhD and I'm starting to think that it would actually make a good thesis in and of itself!

I've had good feedback on what I've already written so far, with the main criticism levelled at introducing my source material more thoroughly. I'm doing that right now and the introductory material to my work (I'm working on some shrines in early modern Spain) is long enough for a chapter of its own.

My question would be thus: has this happened to any of you before - turning material from one chapter into the entire thesis? And has it happened at this stage of the thesis (almost halfway through)? Any advice? Thanks. :)
