Which Humanities Theses Are Fake and Which Are Real?

​As hard as it is to research an obscure thesis topic for months and write it up in a meager 100 or so pages, titling said thesis is likely the hardest part of the whole endeavor. The more esoteric the topic, the more amusing the title (we assume). FM scoured Lamont’s shelves to find the most entertaining humanities thesis titles. We threw in a few of our own creations just to keep you on your toes. Happy guessing! And if you wrote one of these...Well, you’ve got at least one question right by default!

Law School Night in Lamont

A student speaks to a representative from Harvard Law School at the Law School Night Wednesday evening. The event, jointly organized by Harvard Student Agencies and the Office of Career Services, served to provide a single, convenient space for students to hear from and connect with a variety of law schools. Commenting on the high attendance that night, event organizer Ingrid Y. Li ‘17 said, “It’s amazing to see the rejuvenation of interest in law at Harvard.”

Edible Book Competition

It’s Wednesday afternoon and a group of library staff members have gathered for an important vote. Carefully examining the entries, they mark down votes on a ballot which includes categories from “wittiest/punniest” and “most resembles a book,” to “most inedible.” This is Lamont Library’s first edible book contest since 2009 (though I will come to see that both the “book” and “edible” requirements are really more like loose guidelines), a celebration of the scholarly and scrumptious. Lamont’s contest is an incarnation of the Edible Book Festival, an annual competition for “bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers around the world,” according to the website.
