I have also been spending the last couple of days working on my dissertation. I hope to have it almost finished by the time I have my final tutorial in a couple of weeks.
My dissertation looks at Joeseph's Campbell's theory of the monomyth and applies it to the Harry Potter series. I have completed my research now and am just trying to figure out exactly how to structure the piece without it being too repetitive O_O
Anyway I came up with the following diagram applying the theory to the series. Turns out that it fits quite well ^-^ hurray for that!
