    Top 10 Medievalists (Alive)

    Thanks for a great response telkanuru. But didn't Teo Ruiz also study with Strayer? I was under the impression that he did, but I might be wrong. How influential have been medievalists from other disciplines (literature, art history, philosophy) to medieval historians, overall? Some literary scholars, such as Mary Carruthers and Brian Stock, seem to have had a significant influence in the field, but not many. On the other hand, one would expect engagement with art historians given the so-called turn to materiality, but I am not sure this has been the case overall. How do those of you who have already been in graduate school for a couple of years feel about this? Do you usually read non-historian medievalists? Do you usually attend symposia / cite articles by medievalists based on departments outside history?

    Top 10 Medievalists (Alive)

    I think the point is fair, though. William Chester Jordan has some great publications, but he has not been as influential in the field as to be counted as one of the ten most important medievalists. Something interesting about both lists is the sheer dominance of American and British historians, with the exception of one French author on each list. It seems surprising that there is not a single German medievalist, when the impact of German scholarship on the field has been enormous...

    Not Le Roy Ladurie? Montaillou, pioneering attention to environmental history...

    Economics VS Economic History

    That list seems a bit tilted towards the US... One would need to include Adam Tooze, Jan de Vries, John Coatsworth, Michael McCormick, Harold James...
  7. Berkeley and Stanford should also be high on the list, even if only because of Raul Coronado and Ramón Sandivar...

    Stipend enough for NYC?

    I was actually thinking about living on Columbia's subsidized accommodation, at least for the first years, which hovers around $1000 per month.

    Stipend enough for NYC?

    Hello, I have been offered a place at Columbia for the following year. However, as an international student, I am not really sure how affordable it is to live in NYC on a PhD stipend. These are the conditions of my offer: * A stipend of $29,350 during the academic year for up to five years.* A summer stipend of $3,772 for five years, to be disbursed after the first year of enrollment.* The Gold-level insurance premium for the Columbia Student Medical Insurance Plan, as well as half of the Gold-level insurance premium for any eligible dependent Do you think this would be enough to live in NYC without getting into debt? Thanks for the help

    I also had my interview on Friday... I doubt they would send admissions on that day, to be honest.

    To whoever posted a rejection from the Princeton Spanish & Portuguese PhD... How did you find out? Were you at the interviews?

    Given that professors already know... how bad does it look to just go ahead and email your POI about the status of your application?
