  1. Hello! I thought I would start a thread for women's/feminist/gender studies applicants for fall 2017 to share stories, provide support, etc! I am so nervous... I have applied to four phd programs: emory, ucsc, ucla, and stonybrook, and 3 american studies phd programs: yale, harvard, and nyu. I really want to get in somewhere!! This application process has been so stressful, I'd hate to have to do it again. Where are y'all applying? How has the application process been for you?
  2. Hi folks. I'm popping by to see if anyone has ideas about PhD programs/schools/professors I ought to check out based on my interests. I have a B.A. and M.A. in English lit, but was encouraged by my thesis committee to look into WGSS programs in addition to/instead of literature programs (last application cycle was extremely dismal). While I have bookmarked a few programs (UC Irvine Culture and Theory, UCSC Feminist Studies, e.g.), I'm sure I'm overlooking many. Here are some things that I will probably pursue in future work: Autobiography/memoir Philosophies of perception, esp. phenomenology Transgender studies It's this last that I'm especially curious about; it's easy to find profs who are interested in feminist/gender/sexuality/etc. studies, but if I could find someone/where that could support specifically trans studies, that would be ace. Any thoughts off the top of your head?
  3. Hunting for Programs

    How do I find out about programs? and what they consist of? My question I've had since 10th grade is why do Republicans and Democrats think differently? ~How can one group of liberals ignore science when it comes to vaccines and critique conservatives for the whole climate change is a myth thing. ~How do these seemingly-neat categories come to be, ~What holds them together, ~How can we educate ourselves to stay as true to ourselves without falling for fallacies that effect the lives of SO many people outside of ourselves. Here's what i'm working with: Sociological honors research project on church member's (of a single church) beliefs 3.774 gpa after transfer at UCLA 3.8-3.9 at SMC (I had one F that I retook) readings, and hundred of hours of podcasts on the subjects of interest listened to 2 years ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) experience working with an autism spectrum population Here are my worries: I did my undergrad in Gender Studies and Sociology I'm missing basic psych classes I have not done research in 2 years I don't have a decent writing sample Haven't touched the GRE yet Advice? tips? Who can I talk to? Which schools should I be looking at? ~ Georgiy P.S. I would love a program that includes the core ABA classes, so I can do them the first two years getting a Master's and continue on with a PhD transferring the classes as part of the same program. Does this even exist?

  5. Hi folks, I was admitted to the Mphil in Multidisciplinary Gender Studies at Cambridge but with ZERO funding (agh!!). I really want to go, but I don't want to put myself into debt for something that isn't "worth it". So I have a few questions for advice: - Does anyone have any advice on securing funding in alternative/creative routes other than just scholarship searches? - Does an Mphil line up with the goals of a PhD/JD degree? - Does anyone know how to tell how prestigious the program is? I'm having a hard time seeing where it's graduates are getting jobs. I'm considering the JD/PhD split because I really want to do Critical Legal Studies (most of whom are law professors) but i'm afraid of fucking myself over through accruing a ton of debt. I want to do a PhD but don't feel QUITE ready with my undergrad experience and would really like to have one big project (aka the dissertation) under my belt to set me up for a PhD. Also, I think I have a much higher chance of securing full funding once I have the Mphil.If anyone has any random advice around this I would really appreciate it! I'm super super conflicted over whether the Mphil is "worth it" or if I should wait and apply straight to fully-funded PhD/JD programs. I don't feel ready for that and would probably take time off, but love school so much and want to keep advancing myself in my academic goals.
  6. I have read on several websites that the WGS departments nationwide are still expanding and hiring. Can anybody provide some background information on the origins and histories of WGS departments? To what extent does this claim holds true? How possible for a WGS phd focusing on sociology approach to secure a position in sociology departments?
