That's mad, got over a month to write half of mine. Also, (Russell group) doesn't make your dissertation any harder than anyone else's I'm afraid.

Also (modern) History at UEA... Just get slightly annoyed about the whole russell group thing. Our lecturers teach at Oxford, Cambridge, Kings too and they mark it all the same.

What are you looking to do after, or as stuck for ideas as I am?

What was the topic?
The impact of constraints on patriarchy on perceptions of the domestic murderer in contemporary pamphlet literature (eighteenth-century England)

Quite well informed on the area currently, if there's anything you particularly want to know

(typiing the words patriarchy and domestic murder again is making me shudder)

Sounds really interesting actually! What exactly do you mean by 'constraints on patriarchy'?

Well done!

What was it on? Curious to know what history students do dissertation on... I think of dissertations as research based, so was it more of just a really long essay?

What grade do you think you got? I wrote my dissertation in week (although i had already conducted the research -and read articles so was just a matter of writing it up), handed it in a couple of weeks ago and tbh im just hoping for a 2:2 (this would still give me a 2:1 overall).

What are you gonna do after graduating?

What uni do you go to?

Edit: just read what it was on above, sounds interesting!

This feels familiar...

The rise of the companionate marriage and new notions of masculinity and civility; all which served to limit patriarchal theory surrounding the subordination of women to men in the household/marriage.

I was basically exploring whether such attitudes altered perceptions of the husband that killed his, or the master that kills his servant, and whether they began to be viewed as less a transgression of authroity, and more a violation of marital intimacy/domesticity.

I just explained here.

I'm hoping for high 2.1/1st; need 68 in it to fulfil my master offer at Oxford. I spent weeks reading for it but left the actual writing of it as late as I could.
