So im currently trying to figure out what to do for my dissertation and how you actually write one. My proposal is due in late September so I haven't seen any supervisor or anything like that yet but I'm really confused about what one would put in a methodology section for a degree like mine (I do American studies which is essentially a history and literature degree). Im confused at what methodology you could possibly need for doing a literature based dissertation?

(Edit this isn't meant in the postgrad applications section but I can't figure out how to move it lol)

Which forum were you meaning to post in? I can move it to the right one for you.

Well, to work out your methodology, you need to tell us what you want your dissertation to find out or explore. If it's literature based, then presumably you are doing some kind of literature search/review?
