Need an idea for your B.A. essay

Here are some ideas for you to work on – ideas which I would be willing to supervise as BA essays. Other ideas are welcome!

These ideas mostly entail analysis of spoken or written texts in literature or in the media. They are mostly extensions of class exercises I have set in my courses. Students should be prepared to record and analyse the texts, if necessary with the use of tools we have learnt in class.

This list is not in any particular order. I shall add to it whenever I have time and inspiration.

Note: in all but the first of the following proposals, it will sometimes be possible to substitute another language for “Icelandic”, as long as I can find a co-supervisor with competence in the other language!
