I have been looking all over the internet for good places to go to do
my honours year *if* I can do it abroad. If not (more likely) I'll do
it here in Brisbane.
Does anyone know of a uni, preferably in the UK or Ireland, where I
could do something that allowed me to either look at my topic from an
academic or creative writing perspective?
My topic (drumroll... I think it's cool...) will have something to do
with the role of houses (or if I need to be more specific) doors in
fantasy fiction. Something about enclosed space and interesting
labyrinthine bits and trying to get out or stay in or protect or
preserve or what have you. Houses in fantasy are just cool.
I'd like to do both houses and doors, and throw in other bits of
interesting architecture, and possibly furniture too, and then do the
topic through the whole of English Literature from Beowulf to Bronte
and The Yellow Wallpaper, but I think that's a bit much for an honours
topic, don't you? And their role in film is another thing entirely...
It's probably all been done before and better, but it gives me thrills
just thinkin' about investigating it. And writing a fantasy novel with
what I find out. Actually, I've started that already... But that's
So, in answer to the topic or to the overseas uni idea... anyone?
