Theses agenda // Szakdolgozatok

I supervise theses on various issues in film theory, especially psychoanalytic film theory, film adaptation, genre theory, but also on certain aspects of US film history. I also accept thesis proposals on digital theory and culture, contemporary visual culture, contemporary US narratives and US television series.

Thesis writers should note that one month into the active semester (end of September / end of February) they should send me their 2000-word draft that includes the hypothesis, research question and the gist of argumentation. No later than two weeks prior to the submission deadline (usually it should be November 15 / April 15) the thesis should be completely ready, this is the final deadline for me to read and comment on the last version – later submissions for comment and advice will not be processed.
