For the record, my thesis title was very old-fashioned and had no colon, nor need for one.

    I LOVE mine! It’s “Visions of the Past: The Poetics of Ugliness.” Much better than my actual title! (Which, yes, has a colon.)

    “After the Flood: A Review of Comparative Normality”I had no colon. I mean, my dissertation title had no colon. Oh, poop.

    “Visions of the Past: Toward a Systematic Understanding of Proto-Indo-European Swear Words”. Worryingly, after reading too much Colin Renfrew in the past, that almost sounds persuasive.But it’s nowhere near as good as the one I was planning for my MA thesis before the MA was derailed by too much travel; you really can’t beat “The Demonization of Snakes”.
