Folks, the latest drafts of your dissertations will be available to collect from me tomorrow. Please ensure you come by as soon as possible, as your next (and final) draft will be due in next Monday 29th January.
On the whole, it is becoming clear that some of you are simply not taking care to check over your work or pay attention to previous feedback. At this stage, I should only have to give very general comments – I find that is not the case for the majority of you. This work is your responsibility, not mine. If you don’t take the time and effort to improve, you will simply be throwing away 30% of your overall mark.
I will discuss individual feedback with you when you come in to collect your work.
Below is the Dissertation Plan template, I’d like you to use, and I’ve also included an example one to help you. Try and keep a clear focus on the theme/concepts you want to explore. Don’t try to do too much!
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.
