  1. UChicago has Megan Sullivan, the Center for Latin American Studies, and many art history faculty working in critical race studies generally. Alaka Wali from the Field Museum is currently a visiting lecturer there as well.
  2. Someone would make that decision for a range of reasons-- cultural/social fit, particulars of POI relationships, wanting to stay close to a partner/family, reservations over some of the more unsavory realities and/or the traditionalism of the Ivies, wanting the amenities and resources of a large city, etc. While every applicant has to make compromises, choosing a program is ultimately a very personal as well as professional decision. Of course, there are trends in success and job placement dependent on program, but it's also not so simple as just picking a "top" program because some of the metrics are quite subjective, and each applicant has their own unique priorities and concerns. And moreover, where you get your MA isn't the sole or even the most defining factor.
  3. If the two CUNY admits are around the forum-- congrats!! Hopefully you're celebrating this weekend! Echoing the post on the results board, was the email from a POI or the DGS? Guessing the DGS since they've been sending out most correspondence?
  4. I don't know, I don't have that link under my forms section on the Harvard portal... maybe it's an indication of good news for both @artsyrobotand @novella!!
  5. Also shortlisted. We'll see where it goes from here.
  6. Anyone have an update on Yale interviews? I saw someone posted yesterday that they were invited for one (congrats!!)
  7. A Q for an A: did anyone else make a PhD application playlist to get them through the drafting, re-drafting, and re-re-drafting stages?
  8. I don't think it really matters either way. It's just the program trying to get the lay of the landscape, see how their competition fluctuates each year. There are a bunch of discussions on reddit about this portion of the application each year.
  9. Most programs with December deadlines give "good news" in February/early March, and "bad news" in March/April. But it varies.
  10. This is the best one I've been able to find, but it's like 8 or 9 years old at this point... https://www.chronicle.com/article/NRC-Rankings-Overview-History/124737
  11. Thanks for the recommendation! CHE/Nelson seems really fascinating, but there's no faculty member in the art history department I could make a compelling case for. And I'm not exactly in a position to drop a thousand dollars on application fees, so I'm trying to be strategic with where I submit my materials. Best of luck with Berkeley and your other apps!
  12. I'm still in the thick of submitting applications. My proposed research is on artworks that visualize, model, and simulate the Anthropocene online and on broadly digital platforms from the 1960's onward. I'm applying to MIT, Harvard, CUNY, UNC Chapel Hill, and UC Santa Cruz.
  13. Yeahhh, none of us are hearing back for this cycle until, like, March and April. Many programs haven't even had their application deadlines pass yet.
  14. Ditto. Also check if he has a personal website with information for prospective students. One professor I'm applying to work with wrote explicitly on her personal website that she did not respond to preemptive emails from prospectives, and yet another posted on his website that he was looking for a very specific range of research topics.
  15. Hi all! I'm considering applying to the Visual Studies PhD program at UC Santa Cruz this year-- hopefully to work with TJ Demos and Jennifer González-- but I'm having a hard time getting an idea of the reputation of the department as a whole. Any ideas or notions?
