I'm fairly new to grad cafe so sorry if I'm doing this wrong but I need some advice. I'm an aspiring history professor but I only have one language under my belt (French) and know that I definitely need to pick up Latin before applying to Ph.D. programs. I also have an average undergraduate background and would like to improve my chances of getting into a top 30 history Ph.D. program. That being said, I realize that some of the programs I'm applying to will be a reach. I'm looking into getting my MA in either history or medieval studies. I'll detail some of my academic background below
Inspired by a similar post for folks in comparative lit, I wonder how many early modern/renaissance applicants are currently waiting on responses. I'd love to know where everyone applied and what your focus is. I haven't heard from anyone yet--but got an implied rejection from Emory when interviews went out. My background is primarily in seventeenth century poetry and prose, especially John Donne. As a PhD student, I'm hoping to specialize in early modern medicine and medical rhetoric. Looking forward to hearing from others! Best of luck to everyone!
Any recommendations for PhD programs in 16th- and 17th-century Italian art? I have already have an MA in Art History and solid language skills. I know that in the past five years a number of scholars in Early Modern art have retired, especially in the Baroque and the 17th century, so I am also considering working with scholars who focus on Medieval or Renaissance Italian art. Of course, funding is also a concern. Thoughts?
