Senior Thesis Ideas
I honestly have no clue what I want to do for my senior thesis. The only thing I think I know for sure is that I’d like to stay away from hot topic issues (abortion, politics in general, war, sexuality, etc.). However, the idea I like the best so far stems around the topic of feminism, which I feel leans more toward being a hot topic than not being one. The whole idea came from my groups brainstorming session in which a thesis was proposed that dealt with the question “Is Taylor Swift a Snake?” which at first made us laugh because it sounds ridiculous but there is some well founded discrepancy between what people in Hollywood say, and how they act. So I think it may be interesting to explore how feminism in portrayed in the media, and on social media and in Hollywood and possibly how it influences how the general public acts and thinks. I’m still unsure how far I actually want to go with the idea, my plan was to just let the paper work itself out. There may be challenges in getting research hours because I don’t have the time or money to go to Hollywood and investigate so I guess I would have to conduct local interviews or maybe go to a talent agency or something. Although it may seem that I’m set in this idea, it is very likely that I may change my mind about the topic if this falls flat. Hopefully I’ll stumble into something good but we’ll see, I’ll probably have a mental breakdown about this soon. lol.
