Module code: EN7022
The dissertation represents the culmination of your MA studies, and your chance to put into practice what you have learned from your core and optional courses through a 15,000 word exploration of a topic of your choice. A student-led session will allow you to discuss preliminary ideas amongst yourselves. This will be followed by a formal, though unassessed presentation, which will put forward a proposal for your dissertation. In consultation with a supervisor, you will then plan and develop your ideas through a series of written drafts over the summer. Previous topics include: the representation of female murderers in Victorian culture; the working-class and outings to the seaside; maternity corsetry; and the child reader and writer.
