    I'm in my second year, but I start my project this year. Meant to do the practical work this semester and then right it all up next year. The title is something along the lines of.... Investigating pregnancy diagnosis and the timing of partuition with respect to salivary progestrone.

    I think its sheep that I am doing the practical work on - fun!:rolleyes: Got that to look forward to after my exams.

    My English one is going to be on gender confusion in Shakespeare, and how this is played on the stage. I also intend to challenge the common assumption that Ariel (from 'The Tempest') is male.
    I would actually really like to read that...

    Mine's not really a dissertation, but an optional essay that I can submit. My essay is called "Nonmodal Instabilities".

    OK, I am only a first year but I've been giving some thought to this- its the part I'm looking forwards to most of all!

    I think I'll do something about the Second World War; maybe about Ultra, the decrypted Enigma signals, and how they affected the course of the war. or maybe something about Victorian industry- check if the revisionists were right that the railways didn't help industry as much as previously thought.

    or maybe, even, something to do with the history of the theatre...

    Goodness, I've got too many ideas; at the moment, though, the Ultra one sounds good.

    If you end up doing the history of the theatre or the WWII one, let me know and I'd quite like to read it

    It's about stone tools from a site in Kazakhstan, also to do with horse domestication. Haven't got a title yet, am still trying to come up with one (am not a finalist, it's a special project I have to start early as the stuff I'm analysing goes back to Kazakhstan in July).
    What uni are you at and what are you studying? That sounds very interesting . . .

    I've got hold of my History dissertation title now - 'A Late Medieval Lady and her World: The Will of Elizabeth, Countess of Salisbury'

    I have 9-10,000 words to write by May 2nd! :eek: Still, at least I've translated the actual will already (in medieval French - it's never been published in translation), and done some of the primary sources research.
