For those of you who missed Friday 9th June’s lesson.
Below is a huge list of possible texts to consider for your dissertations – it’s also helpfully been divided by theme. This is not a restrictive list – don’t feel you HAVE to choose something from it, but it will give you an idea of the calibre of texts you should be selecting.
Reminder of your deadlines, too:
- Dissertation Proposals due in Wednesday 16th August 2017.
- First draft of dissertations due in Thursday 5th October 2017.
- Final draft of dissertations due Monday 8th January 2018.
Folks, such good luck to you tomorrow! Don’t panic, and try and get a good night’s sleep. Remember, you’ve worked hard; you’ve got this.
Come see me after and let me know how it went!
Covers relevant questions for our poetry, prose fiction and drama texts.
Hope the holiday is going well, and that you’re getting a chance to relax amid all the work you’re obviously doing.
Still waiting on dissertations coming through from a number of people – you know who you are. I am more than happy to give advice and assistance, provided you give me time to do it. If you send it to me on Sunday expecting feedback by Monday morning, you will be disappointed.
On Monday, we will be completing our fly-leafs (fly-leaves? Who knows.) for the dissertations. I need EVERYONE to bring in the following:
- A digital copy of their dissertation, with a COVER and FULL LIST OF REFERENCES – see examples below.
- A printed copy of the above, which you have checked over so very, very carefully.
- Cakes, to celebrate (optional).
Here’s the example dissertation we have discussed in class, which you all have a paper copy of – obviously the content is great (30 out of 30), but also note how the quotations and footnotes appear.
Here’s the dissertation guide that you all also have a copy of too, to answer any last minute queries.
Reminder that, unless I have spoken to you about this, the deadline for your FINAL draft is Friday 31st March. If you’re concerned you won’t meet this deadline, then speak to me BEFORE Friday.
