Photography Dissertation!! Help much appreciated

Discussion in 'Education' started by zoe_michelle, Oct 17, 2012.

  1. Hello there...
    My name is Zoe and I'm in my final year of a photography ba hons degree. I've done two bodies of work on mental illness, and currently carrying on my project on dementia (If you want to have a look at it, www.zoemichelle.co.uk/ROWWAB and rowwab.tumblr.com).. But where I'm slightly confused is how to draft my research paper/dissertation. This is my (rough draft) question:-
    Can photography aid treatment/maintenance of relationships, for those suffering with dementia?

    If I can be really cheeky and get some peoples response on this? That I could maybe use as opinion/discussion based referencing within my essay - to get a general idea of different viewpoints on my subject within the photographic industry?
    Would very much appreciate any help/opinions you could give me
    Zoe
     
  2. Here's a page that may be useful, although quite brief:

    Here's another (from the Smithonian Institute Initiative):

  3. Ah great thanks Ben, will have a good read of those links tonight!
     
  4. This may be late, but try to come up with 3-4 clear objectives. You also need to think about things such as methodology, research philosophy etc. I've had 20 years supervising undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations, but they were in business!
