Thesis chapter

The body of the thesis must be double spaced. Footnotes, bibliographical entries, long quoted passages, and items in lists and tables may be single spaced.

9. Make sure your proposal has a comprehensive review of the literature included. Now this idea, at first thought, may not seem to make sense. I have heard many students tell me that "This is only the proposal. I'll do a complete literature search for the dissertation. I don't want to waste the time now." But, this is the time to do it. The rationale behind the literature review consists of an argument with two lines of analysis: 1) this research is needed, and 2) the methodology I have chosen is most appropriate for the question that is being asked. Now, why would you want to wait? Now is the time to get informed and to learn from others who have preceded you! If you wait until you are writing the dissertation it is too late. You've got to do it some time so you might as well get on with it and do it now. Plus, you will probably want to add to the literature review when you're writing the final dissertation.

Question: Write the the question you have been assigned or the prompt you are going to answer with your essay in the box below.

Writing dissertations in an efficient way comes naturally to our writers. has served thousands of happy customers with Undergraduate, Bachelors, PhD or Doctoral dissertations and thesis papers, keeping to stringent deadlines at extremely affordable prices.

Instrumental dexterity and virtuosity take on completely different meanings when building and performing on DIY/invented instruments which have little to no context/canon to draw on. This issue is manageable when dealing with instruments that are somewhat similar to existing instruments ( Specty , Electric Whisks , Sidrassi-Tom ), although their hybrid nature creates both physically and mentally complex interactions. But it certainly becomes complicated when dealing with simpler (digital) instruments driven by concept , software , or systematic interaction . The code underlying these instruments can “be seen as the wood and strings of the digital instrument maker” ( Magnusson 2010 ). How does one become a virtuoso of an instrument made out of only two knobs ? There is nothing unusual about the physical dexterity involved in performing with such an instrument, so what then makes one a virtuoso at it? And if it is not a physical dexterity, where does that virtuosity reside?
