It’s week 8 and I really need to start breaking the research topic for my dissertation into something more manageable, because it’s currently looking like a PhD-worthy thesis.
So, I’m in my final year of university now and here’s what I’m working on (academically) until June 2019…
- A dissertation
- A “major media project”
- A collaborative interactive-video project based on the “transience of memory”
I totally intend to use my blog to scribble my ideas down and keep a record of my progress.
Yeah. I should have started this sooner, but there’s no time better than the present so… here we go.
Just to catch you up:
I was interested in exploring the topic of fintech, but seeing as I spent 14.5 months full time at Starling Bank (where I’m still working part-time) for my placement year and it looks as though I’ll be heading back there full-time from next summer – I decided to use this academic year to explore something else. I’m aware that’s a missed opportunity.
I’ve always had an ongoing, internal debate with myself about LGBT+ topics and so I decided to settle on this as my area of study this year. Being a gay man is kind of a big deal to me, so I’m looking to cover LGBT+ topics in my dissertation and my major media project.
It’s now week 7. More ramblings incoming very shortly…
