  1. Hello everyone. This is a cross-post with a topic I made in the Humanities board. I'm currently a Junior in a BFA Creative Writing program; however, I studied English at my previous college. I need help deciding where to focus my academic efforts over the next 9 months so that I'm not applying to programs which are beyond my skill-set. I've considered pursing an MFA, but after speaking with my advisors I feel that a PhD program better suits my current interests. I'm much less interested in publishing creative work in literary journals than I am in understanding the rhetoric of artist
  2. Which programs are strong in critical pedagogy, particularly those that don't require the GRE? I am interested in the general intersection of politics, society, and education with a particular focus (potential research interests) in the politics of neutralisation within schools, the neutralisation of the political in a fundamentally political institution, teaching as a political act, critiques of standards/standardisation/standardised testing, and related themes and topics. Think Michael Apple, Paulo Freire, Michel Foucault, and so on. Would rather not consider programs that require
  3. Hello everyone, Welcome to my pre-graduate educational crisis. I'm currently a Junior in a BFA Creative Writing program; however, I studied English at my previous college. I need help deciding where to focus my academic efforts over the next 9 months so that I'm not applying to programs which are beyond my skill-set. I've considered pursing an MFA, but after speaking with my advisors I feel that a PhD program better suits my current interests. I'm much less interested in publishing creative work in literary journals than I am in understanding the rhetoric of artistic forms and
  4. Hi, all. What are current thoughts on Kingston's CRMEP? I know that Kingston has been in a bit of financial trouble lately, and I have some doubts about the school overall due to this. Furthermore, Kingston's CRMEP is not ranked highly for continental philosophy programs—as opposed to Essex, Sussex, Warwick, etc.. Despite all that, CRMEP absolutely has the best faculty (Peter Osborne, Catherine Malabou, Howard Caygill, Peter Hallward, and Étienne Balibar) for my purposes compared to any English-speaking school I've seen in the US and internationally. I am tempted to pick an MA program for its
  5. Hi everyone, I was recently granted with one of the most prestigious fellowships in my country (Spain) to pursue graduate studies in the USA / Canada. This means I will be fully funded for two years and I have no financial restrictions for choosing a graduate program. I'm currently working on my applications and still doing research on different possibilities. Some questions have arisen and because I am unfamiliar with many aspects of the US graduate education system I thought I can find some answers by sharing them with you. I have a background in Literary Studies and a BA in Fi
  6. Hi everyone, Hoping to hear some advice about applying to MA programs with the long term goal of beginning a PhD in Philosophy. I graduated with honors from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Painting and a concentration in History of Art and Visual Culture in 2014. Towards the end of my schooling, my focus had shifted away from Fine Art courses (which at RISD already had a degree of Theory focus) towards my liberal arts courses which were heavily influenced by Critical Theory. My GPA was 3.809. Since graduating I have done a lot of Philosophy reading and studying on my
  7. Hi, I think I am posting this question/concern in the right place? Also, I preemptively apologize for this long post ... here we go My background: graduated 5 years ago from undergrad and am 100% on going back to graduate school in the next year. I was not the best student in undergrad until I found sociology (which I minored in) my 3rd year. Cumulative GPA is 2.88 but counting only anthropology and sociology classes (5 classes total) it is more like 3.5. Why I want to attend grad school: Ideally I would like to teach sociology in some capacity at a community college. If th
  8. Greetings, Long-time lurker, first-time poster. I figured it might be worthwhile to get a reality check from some of my peers on here, as you all would know better than many of the real-world people I know about the MES world and what their admissions processes look like. I could really use some perspective and context about this matter, so some feedback would be greatly appreciated. I am in an unconventional situation where: a) I am adamant about transitioning into academia/the humanities to study the Middle East with a focus on the intellectual history of the Levant and
  9. Hello, In one of my current courses we are discussing Huntington's 'Political Order in Changing Societies'. In his point of view, the degree of order matters more than what kind of order is in place and we were discussing in which branch of political science theory it would be located. We thought about historical institutionalism but I would argue that this really doesn't fit since the actual change of institutions especially due to path dependence is completely dismissed by Huntington. So now, I was thinking what other branch would actually fit. Anti-modernization theory does not re
  10. I’m currently applying to Ph.D. programs and I’m seeking advice regarding writing samples. For context: About half of the programs to which I’ll be applying are Philosophy Ph.D. programs and the remainder of which are either English Ph.D. programs or some combination of the two (e.g., Ph.D. in Cultural Studies at Ohio State Uni). My background is a Bachelor’s in English Literature with a minor in Philosophy and a Master’s degree in Critical and Cultural Theory. My question is: for literature program applications, if my Master’s work focused predominantly on media studies and involv
  11. Hey all, Congrats to those who received acceptances this go around. I never thought I'd find myself among you, yet here I am faced with the challenge of picking one off the top shelf. My proposed research area is 20th/21st century postmodern lit -- lots of experience with magical realism, afrofuturism, historical fiction that seeks to rework the master narrative of 1492. Feminist, Poststructuralist and Postcolonial theory is pretty essential to my work. I'm looking for a program that's super interdisciplinary, allowing me to work in the realm of cultural studies, critical race studies, an
  12. Hi, I'm new here and was hoping to get some feedback on good fits for someone interested in media studies, visuality, and theory. In particular, I'm looking for MA or PhD programs and faculty that share my interests in the body, visuality, subjectivity, and desire. In terms of approaches, I tend to gravitate toward queer theory (Foucault primarily), aesthetics ( interested in applying Heideggerian notions of worlding to contemporary transnational art), and psychoanalysis. I know there are some obvious contenders out there (NYU, Brown, Duke), but I'm a bit worried because my grades aren't
  13. Hi everyone, I'm applying to PhD programs in Fall 2017 but a lot of faculty I have contacted have given me a mixed response regarding as to where my research interest fits. I already have a detailed proposal of my topic (I'm also applying to the UK, as well as the US, and the UK requires a detailed one), which focuses on the Middle East, nationalism, and Orientalism. After sharing with some anthropologists my idea, which they said they were interested in, they also said that my focus on Orientalism is more related to cultural studies than anthropology (which I don't particularly un
  14. Hello there! reaching out to see if anyone in studying Critical Theory (frankfurt school)! I'd like to reach out to other programs and share conferences, etc. I'd like to go big with this! Very excited.
  15. Hello everyone, Greetings, first post in this forum, hope everyone's doing well on their applications. I'm currently a graduate student completing my degree in Master of International Affairs at Penn State University, and I plan to apply for Political Science or Communications Ph.D programs for fall 2013. Before I get into the specific field I'm looking for, let me start with my academic background: Graduate: Penn State University, Master of International Affairs, GPA: 3.95 Undergrad: Drexel University, BA in International Studies, GPA 3.2 (Junior/Senior year GPA 3.8) GRE: Ver
