    I peruse the History forum every now and then, and I thought this post was rather touching for those of us in the throes of early worry during this time. I think it speaks to us as literary scholars as much as it does to historians.

    You should watch the performance of C&L Live, if you haven't already. The whole Live record puts a lot of beautiful interpretations on the album's songs.

    Right now I’m really into sample-based electronic and vapor wave! Like George Clanton, Nicolas Jaar, James Ferraro, etc. I’d highly suggest Clanton’s recent album, Slide. Also, i thoroughly enjoyed the 1975’s new album!

    100% this. I am a student of the fin de siècle of the U.S., and as close as a game can get, Rockstar hit the nail on the head tbh

    She is! However, in my research, I'm less focused on just the visual culture aspect of her work and more so on sensational mediums

    Ugh. You seem like such an optimistic and positive person– definitely needed right now. The idea that I'm not defined by my academic pursuits, regardless of the decisions, has been one of the hardest parts of this process, to be completely honest...

    not sure if it's a troll, but someone posted an interview for U Chicago to the results board...

    absolutely delighted I start coursework again next week, because I need the distraction this next month and a half (I assume?)

    For visual culture, I cannot suggest Radical Sensations by Shelley Streeby enough. Less of a contemporary analysis of visual culture as it is a late-19th and early 20th century look at sensational media depicting state sanctioned violence against indigenous and racialized citizens. Her overarching argument is that that these medias were disseminated throughout the world, and then they became transnational catalysts for social movements in the U.S., Mexico, and other countries.

    I went all in on research in my SOP, since in my first draft I tried to include teaching experience and a conference presentation ALONG with my research experience and goals– it was an absolute mess... I have gotten the same vibe as I've talked with professors and alumni in PhD programs, especially in humanities programs like the Ivies, U Chicago, UT Austin, etc.

    Fit

    I have not! But it has been on my radar to get into at some point! However, I did read excerpts from Justice and the Politics of Difference for a philosophy seminar this last semester, although that text is more concerned with inefficiencies of distributive justice than embodiment– still a great writer nonetheless!
