SOS EPQ ideas?Watch
I'm interested in human behaviours and I also songwrite in my spare time. I considered using my songwriting as an artefact but I don't know how I'd do that really?
Instead I thought it might be cool to do an English-lit kind of EPQ but using lyrics instead. Again, I'm not sure how I'd do this but it'd be nice to be able to do some Englishy analysis.
Thanks in advance to anyone who contributes you will be a literal godsend!! )
In terms of topic, if I were to have done my EPQ on something for English, I would have done some sort of a comparison between two pieces of literature. E.g. The Great Gatsby and A Streetcar Named desire- rise of the new America, love etc. Could you perhaps do this with poetry as the lyrics? Sorry I dont know what you could do with the lyrics
History is great for an EPQ because there are just so many titles out there. E.g. say you like the idea of writing it on something to do with NAZI Germany you could write it on how the NAZIs maintained power- through terror, consent of the German people or propaganda and brainwashing. Any historical debate/ uncertainty can have an EPQ written on it provided that it isn’t covered in one of your a levels.
I don’t do Geography so I don’t know what you would write it on there. I guess you could do it on climate change- assessing what needs to be done to stop it or something. Alternatively, you could do it on poverty or something to do with urbanisation?
Sorry after writing this i am not sure how relevant it is to you as its not rlly on the lyrics bit but I hope it helps!
English-style EPQs are great - I personally did a lit based EPQ looking at the influence of Christian morality on Shakespeare. Looking at the influence of a factor on lyrics of a particular artist could be a great way to look at things - for example the impact of war on lyrics by X artist(s) in the time period Y-Z. Doing factors like war could also bring in some history whilst still keeping it focused on an interest from outside of your A Levels.
