    Grad Schools in Germany

    Hello all, Since I could not take GRE exam, I've applied gradschools in Canada. But I have been thinking about some high ranking universities in Germany such as Humboldt and University of Mannheim . I'm interested in work and labor, economic sociology... Besides, I think that I would have limited opportunities to improve my sociological skills in those schools in Germany. You know European PhD programs have different patterns than those schools in USA and Canada. What do you think? Are there anyone could tell about experiences in those schools? Ekinsu
  2. Hello everyone, I am looking to apply to graduate school for this upcoming fall (2019). I would really like to find an M.A anthropology program with available funding. My academic interests coalesce around such topics as ethnohistory, ethnography, identity, cultural exchange, experience, and visual anthropology. The intersection between anthropology, critical history, and the dynamic human experience of the individual is central to my worldview and shapes what I envision for myself in terms of future study and research. I also have strong tilt towards South Asia, as I have completed numerous research programs in northern India. I also speak intermediate Hindi. Given these thoughts, I was wondering if people had any Master's programs in mind that they would like to recommend. I'm not opposed to hearing Ph.D program recommendations either, but it is the funded M.A programs I am having trouble finding. I am also open to considering non-anthropology programs that deal closely with the subjects I mentioned above. Thanks! Austin

    Pilot research??

    Hello everyone! I recently finished the first year of my phd program in Anthropology. My focus is in South India, and I was awarded a Pilot Research grant in order to go to India this summer and start making contacts/finding my future research site. Although I like the University I attend, and am grateful for this opportunity, I have not been given much guidance on what to actually do. I am leaving for India towards the end of August, and have selected a few sites to visit(my research has to do with Muslim's who participate in Hindu religious rituals), but at this time I do not speak the language necessary to properly communicate with people. One of the few things I was told is that I do not have to produce a paper or anything like that with this grant, but I would like to if possible. I have some friends in the area I will be going to, and it is through them that I have began to navigate my journey. I should note that I have already been to India 9 times, and so navigating around India is not my concern. Any advice would be great. Also, I do not have a background in Anthropology, and the Anthropology theory classes are not until next year, so I am also unclear on which direction to turn towards when writing about my upcoming experiences. Thanks in advance, Eugenio
  4. I am a linguistic anthropology Ph.D student who does fieldwork on language contact, migration, and interaction in Southeast Asia and could use some advice on field equipment. I am mainly looking for a good camera that I can use for pictures (mostly street photography) and video (for interactional analysis), as well as a durable laptop that can run programs like ELAN, Praat, etc., and handle basic video editing. Advice on good audio recorder (I’ve been looking at Zooms But haven’t made any decisions yet) would also be appreciated. Thanks so much!
  5. Hi everyone! Do you know any good graduate programmes (either US, Canada and Europe) in cultural studies/anthropology/etc. with a strong focus on (or supportive to) psychoanalysis? Or any psychoanalytic graduate programme which doesn't require previous major in psychology? I've heard about exclusively psychoanalytic programmes in UCL, Birkbeck and Essex, but I wish I had a wider choice. Thanks in advance! P.S. btw, my work lies in the field of psychoanalytical criticism of video games and digital culture as whole. So, I guess programmes in comparative literature (which could often be psychoanalysis-friendly) would not be a good suggestion.

    Choosing PhD Topic

    Hi everyone I'd like to ask your advice in this superb forum, regarding my hesitation between two specializations in PhD (I'm currently searching for fully-funded PhD programs outside of Egypt! & my Master's was in the field of political science). Generally, I have determined my future research agenda that I will focus on my whole life... & it involves two directions which I will try to interconnect: 1) Researching the impact of expanding children's knowledge paradigm (specifically children dis-attached from stable socialization - preferably in conflict areas, if I'd be able to get funding to go there) through the lens of Big History on their value & identity formation. 2) Researching human cultural evolution within Big History, specifically change of cultural values & identity, & their future directions. I realize that for my PhD, I must focus on one topic/direction only. So I figured that (since I plan to specialize in both tracks in the future), I must focus my PhD on the one that needs more training than the other (to make efficient use of the PhD-provided time & training). So I wonder if anyone knows which of these two directions needs more training? I speculate that the first direction needs training in anthropological & ethnographic research & psychological analysis... while the second direction needs training in mathematical modeling & analysis & cliodynamics... which would you think needs more essential training for the time being, while I can postpone the other to catch up with more easily in post-doc?

  8. I am currently a a Master's student in the Sociology department at WVU. I am looking to apply to PhD programs for next fall (Fall 2017). I prefer qualitative methods (ethnography, urban sociology) and would like to find a program with a strong qualitative focus. Google is only decently helpful, and I hate trying to use 'official' rankings as a unit of measurement. Does anyone have any suggestions on programs and/or faculty? Thanks!!
