Hi everyone, I stumbled upon this forum while searching for dissertation ideas. I'll be entering my 3rd year at uni next month, studying illustration BA(hons). I could really use some help with trying to create a structure from my current interests and ideas for my upcoming dissertation. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I'm currently looking at Neo-Victorianism and the genre of Steampunk as a possible idea for my final project but would like to incorporate this into my dissertation somehow. I have to link it into illustration and create an 'argument' for the essay. As a starting point, (I'm hoping my idea will develop into something a bit more in depth as I'm aware the following isn't enough to warrant a 5000 word essay of degree standards) I was thinking of looking at Steampunk and whether it can be classed as an aesthetic movement in it's own right, but not really sure where I could take it from there and how to keep it interesting? Any ideas/suggestions would be great! :icon_smile: Shelley.
