Just interested to hear what other finalists on TSR are doing their dissertations on!

I'm doing two - one for each subject (I'm studying joint honours History and Music).

Aw, I know that feeling well! I was having a massive panic earlier about my Music one - I'm supposed to be finishing it tomorrow, but still have rather a lot to do - but I feel a bit more confident now. Hope you feel better soon!

What's your title by the way? My Music one is 'Carols on Customs: The Boar's Head Corpus in Context'. I can't remember my History one off the top of my head, but it's based on the will of Elizabeth Salisbury, countess of Salisbury (who died in 1415).

I don't know your actual title! Just that it's about King John, and involves you translating bits from one of the chronicles...

Well, it hasn't got a proper title yet. My supervisor said that I should fit the title to the dissertation, not the other way round. It'll probably be something like 'Matthew Paris and the traditional reputation of King John'.

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).

I am only in my second year, but have agreed the title of my project for next year. Although I can't remember the exact wording, it is something like, "Effects of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species on acetylated homoserine lactones with respect to quorum sensing disruption by hyperbaric therapy in the treatment of chronic wounds". Can't wait!
That sounds awesome, just the title though not particularly interested in the subject.

Mines on reciprocating internal combustion engine crankshaft vibrations. I'm writing up the report at the mo. :rolleyes:

"A Comparison of Block and Stream Ciphers" - basically it's to do with cryptography. Although I'm not actually a finalist... but next year I have a group project to do rather than a dissertation, so that's my equivalent.

I'm doing two as well, as I do Joint Hons Classics and English.
Our dissertation meetings are next term for Classics, Exeter starts really early!

My Classics one is going to be on the development of Greek musicology, the role of music in drama and dithyramb, how we lost its sound, and its general demise.

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.

In Swansea, they wont let you do two dissertations (that's the case if you do a joint honours with the Politics & IR department anyway).

I'm very interested because I used to study astronautical engineering. Good luck on it, sounds very cool.
