  1. Anyone else apply for the Center for Engaged Scholarship dissertation fellowship? This award is not listed on the Wiki. It's new this year - $25,000 for social science dissertations that are relevant to "progressive values." I applied and haven't heard anything. Just wondering if anyone else had. http://cescholar.org/dissertation-fellowships/
  2. Hello! So for visiting day, the program that just accepted me is arranging for me to meet faculty members I am interested in working with, and I am SO nervous. What will those conversations be like? Should I be prepared to answer detailed questions about my research interests or my research project? To be totally honest, at the moment I have NO idea what my dissertation will be on and even what general area I will be focusing on. I'm a literature student, and a part of me is thinking of switching from contemporary literature to early modern/17th-century lit... Thanks in advance
  3. RESEARCH PARTICIPANTS NEEDED Have you worked with a pregnant therapist? At the time of her pregnancy, did you have no biological children? At any point in your life have you felt distress about the decision to, timing of, or your ability to have children? I am a doctoral student at the Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA. I am looking for volunteers for my dissertation study on the experience of women who have worked with a pregnant therapist, and who had no biological children at the time of the therapist’s pregnancy. What is the purpose of this study?
  4. Hi everyone! Looking for anyone working on their dissertation this summer and looking to meet up for writing sessions! I'm in the Lakewood/Long Beach, CA area.
  5. Currently, I am in the process of looking for some topic ideas that I could possibly do for my dissertation. I don't need to have a concrete answer right now, but I will need something by my second semester due to a research class that is required (we have to have a small idea of what we want to research in order to complete assignments for the class). My topic has to be somewhat public history based due to the program that I attend. I am looking into Jim Crow, the Civil Rights Movement, or Black Power eras as places to research. I did my master's thesis on my hometown's Civil Rights Movemen
  6. Hi all! I'm [supposedly] at the end of my studies, but I've had what I feel is an awful advisor/student experience and I’m concerned it’ll prevent me from finishing. I’m currently finishing writing up my dissertation. The majority of it is written, I completed my last science (work) chapter earlier this week and am now working on my introductory and concluding chapters. Short version: Problem: I haven’t gotten meaningful feedback on the last 60% of my research work and it stresses me out! Put short, my thesis is three mini-projects, with the last 2 being spin-offs from the firs
  7. Hey everyone, So when I initially joined gradcafe and went through the list of forums and subforums, I was astonished to find that so many academic disciplines exist in the world. I am keen to keep myself updated about latest research in all disciplines. As I like to read and gain knowledge. So I wanted to know is there any particular website or app which lists latest research developments(such as Journal articles, PhD thesis from top universities, Articles from influential scholars in the field, Review Articles etc. etc.) in all fields(Social Sciences, Applied Sciences, Pure Science
  8. Hi, I'm in my second semester as a Ph.D. student in Comparative Literature. I know some people might think that it's too early for me to start worrying about what to do to get hired, others might be thinking that it's never too early, others might be saying "you're a comparative lit. major, there are no jobs" lol, but please just stick with me a moment. I'm looking for advice on how I can become a more competitive applicant when applying for assistant professor jobs (and similar jobs) after I finish my Ph.D. I'm technically first-generation college student (my parents dropped out of coll
  9. Hi, This is my first time posting in the forum (hoping that I don't make any mistakes) I am currently in my final year of my law degree. As part of my final year studies, there is a dissertation module to complete and I have chosen criminology as the subject of research. Due to the nature of my degree, I am unable to find a academic supervisor in the way on-campus students are assigned to for the purpose of their dissertation. Thus, i seek advise as to how I can find some kind of help akin to academic supervision or any kind of advise on how to carry out this independent resea
  10. So 1 of my programs asks for the entire MA thesis while another asks for the abstract and one or more chapters. I was planning to use my dissertation as the basis of all my writing samples, but two of the samples require much shorter lengths. One requires 15-20 pages and the other "no more than 30." My MA report is 154 pages (including references and appendices; probably ~100 pages of actual report content) at 1.5x spacing. Any ideas on how to reduce it down? Should I include a link to the full report as part of my submission? The report sections are: Abstract Introduction
  11. Hey everyone. I'm really sorry if you've seen this sort of thread a billion times and have gotten sick of it, but I had trouble locating a thread like this that actually applies directly to me. I graduated this year with a BA from University College London, and am set to begin a master's course at LSE this fall. For my undergraduate education, I had to write a 10000 word dissertation based on my original research, and will have to write a 15000 for my master's course. After I am done at LSE, I hope to undertake a PhD in political science (focusing on political philosophy and
  12. I've published my PhD dissertation and got my PhD recently. Can I rewrite my PhD dissertation for publication in a journal article? And in the process of doing so, can I simply recycle(re-use word per word) sentences from my PhD thesis, or do I have to rephrase everything to avoid self-plagiarism? Are there any special annotations that I have to make when publishing my PhD dissertation as a journal article?
  13. I am currently completing my master table for my IPA analysis and I am struggling to find quotes for my chosen subordinate themes for all of my subjects. I have attempted to try a deeper analysis but some of the transcripts are very different to each other. Does each subject for each theme have to have a page/line number within the table or can there be gaps if explained in the write up?
  14. I'm done writing my thesis proposal, and I'm working on filling out the RTAF for the graduate school. I've selected two faculty members for my thesis advisory committee but I need at least one more person to serve on my committee. I've found an archaeologist who worked at the site I'm interested in, but how do I go about contacting her to ask if she'll serve on my committee? Is name-dropping acceptable? Would it be best to include a CV/resume and a copy of my proposal, or would this be perceived as annoying fluff? What form of communication is preferred? Any and all information is appreciated!
  15. Hi guys, I just got a great cross-sectional dataset that I can potentially use for my dissertation. I am in my first year PhD right now but I am planning ahead as I want to get this thing done in 3 years. I plan to propose right after my comps (end of 2nd year - summer before my third year) and write and defend by the end of 3rd year. This is also because my funding is not guaranteed for third year. The problem is - my advisor is very hands-off (meaning - he would rather hear your plan and then approve/disapprove) rather than discussing plans with you. I meet him only once a quarter
  16. Does anybody have a dissertation proposal story to share? Anything related to deadlines that got missed because no one told you what the deadline was, communicating with multiple faculty, some who rarely respond to emails, departments that don't communicate the rules but expect them to be followed, etc. Also, advice on how to deal with difficulties like these tactfully without sounding snarky or blame-y (sometimes I feel like writing, "I sent you an email about this two weeks ago") would be great! Most of the faculty are great, but I am just not catching on to the styles of others. Thanks!
  17. Hi, I don't know if it is the best place to ask about this topic but I hope it would be fine! After the end of my master degree, my tutor (and program director) told me informally that they were very happy with my dissertation and that the board wants to award me the Prize for Best Dissertation of the year and that an "official letter will follow soon." This was October, and I asked him about the Prize two more times by email (I changed address so I communicated the new address and the last time I asked if I could mention the Prize in my CV even if it hasn't awarded officially, yet)
  18. Hi All! Just stumbled on this site and it looks like there is a good core of sociologists from all over! I'm about to go into my final year of my undergraduate and I'm looking to be doing something very special and a bit challenging for my dissertation that will give me a good strong ground for getting further research funding and getting onto an MSc/PHd course in the future. Currently my focus is very towards young people in Scotland from a looked after background and how they are supported by local governance to progress onto their own independent living with anything close t
  19. I am a PhD student and I had some research funding lined up for the upcoming year, but it fell through at the last minute quite unexpectedly. So right now I'm frantically scrambling to secure some alternate funding. I'm on an F-1 visa, so off-campus employment is really not an option (apart from applying for OPT which takes months to process). This is why I am looking for dissertation fellowship opportunities as well. I know that most fellowships for a given academic year have deadlines early in the year, but I was wondering whether there are some with (very) late deadlines, or consider applic
  20. I'm busy doing reading for my research proposal which will eventually become an 8000 word dissertation with practical component. I am an illustration honours student. I am looking at Dream descriptions as narratives and I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me, I also want to create illustrations (visual art, visual representations) (part of my practical component) based on these dream descriptions (that i gathered from other people). Which type of theories would I look at in terms of this sort of subject? And what sort of topics would help me narrow down my research scope eno
  21. I know we are a few weeks out but I wanted to start a thread so we can keep each other informed about the 2015-2016 Ford Dissertation Fellowship. If you hear anything let us know!!
  22. I'm looking for someone to exchange dissertation/thesis chapters with. I really need a fresh set of eyes on my writing and thought reading someone else's term paper or dissertation/thesis chapter(s) and giving them feedback, and then them doing the same for me, would be a good idea. Of course I'm working closely with my advisor, but having another peer look over my work helps to see my own writing better before turning it in. If you are looking for a writing partner to provide feedback (or hold an "accountability" type of arrangement) on their dissertation, thesis or a term paper, I hope you w
  23. Is there a logic to this other than "find people who are knowledgeable in the area of and sympathetic to your specific dissertation topic" ? My university's handbook tells us to choose 5 committee members, specifying that a maximum of two can be chosen from outside the university. Why would that be a good plan? Is there some reason why you would WANT someone from outside the university given the added bureaucratic red tape and trouble for everyone involved? Reasons I can think of: Your university lacks people with the right expertise. Your beloved former adviser has moved to a d
