For her dissertation the client is exploring the myth behind cuban missile crisis, looking at government deception (archives released in 90’s suggests a lot of what was being said at the time wasn’t the case, conflict resolved in a different why) and asking why they sold a different outcome at the time to American public.
Motives behind this. So far she has written 8,000 words (of 12,000 words) and has one more chapter to write. She just got feedback from 3,000 word section that she sent to supervisor, which was mixed.
She feels her supervisor is very particular, likes a lot of source analysis and didn’t like the structure within the chapter so she is working on making things more clear. She is unsure of how well the dissertation pulls together as one document as she has been working on each section separately as she goes – so would like feedback on the overall flow.
Also some support with academic writing and making sure she is using strong analysis and original ideas. Dissertation is worth third of her final mark so weighted heavily – wants to put a lot of effort into this. Virus has given her less resources but uni will take this into account.
