The Ninety-Five Theses

If you’ve taken Contemporary Civilization or come from a Flyover state with a long history of Scandinavian homesteaders, you are probably familiar with Martin Luther and his 95 theses. Well, we connected the dots and realized it’s not a huge jump from demonstrating the hypocrisy of the Papists to fighting the established patriarchal norms of Academia with a particularly topical and snappily titled Senior Thesis. We present here 95 thesis topics that may or may not be currently in progress and wish you luck in procrastinating your own. In the meantime we’ll be nailing these to the doors of Low.
