    Brandeis Anthropology

    Does anyone have any experience with studying sociocultural anthropology at Brandeis? I've been accepted into their joint MA Anthropology / Women's Gender and Sexuality studies program. I'm curious to know of others' experiences or just knowledge of the program.
  2. Hello! This might seem really early but I'm working on my grad school applications for entry next year and wanted to see if anyone else is doing the same? So far my Gender/Women's Studies options are: Emory University of Maryland University of Wisconsin-Madison (sociology) Indiana University-Bloomington University of York (UK) University of Sussex (UK) (Possibly) University of Arizona (Possibly) Western University in Canada My research interests are around embodiment, reproductive health, contraception, phenomenology, agency, contraceptives as icon/symbol of femininity - all the fun stuff! I work in development/SRHR overseas now and already have my MSc, but still not sure what my chances will be! Is anyone applying to U of Az or Western that could talk about what appeals? The course at Western would be amazing for me but I hear that London Ontario is a terrible place to live ... Also, what's a good number to apply to? The UK university applications aren't due for a while so focusing on those in the US/Canada for now! Looking forward to hearing from others! Ams
  3. I got in Laurier fully funded and at UNBC where I might be funded or at least get a TAship but nothing guaranteed. I read that Laurier is a "spoiled boys" school where they go pretty much to party. Also I read at McLean's that the guys love to work out ! Is that true? I am not worried about Lindsay Shephard mess and all, even though my dept. is the very as hers. Anyone have any word to give?
  4. Hi there! I am a Sociology graduate, and have been working in a community organisation. I am interested in pursuing a MA in gender studies, and have an interest in feminist participatory action research. Wondering if anyone could recommend any schools or academics that I should look out for? Thanks a million!
  5. I had posted about this earlier but now giving some details: I am giving an interview for GATES Cambridge wherein I have been selected for the PhD in Multidisciplinary Gender Studies. However, the supervisor I have been assigned, her primary area isn't what my proposed research is about and the entire department itself is Social sciences oriented. My proposed research is Cultural studies/Interdisciplinary in nature and they selected me because I bring something new to their Department. The PhD here is for three years. Now, I also have a fully funded option of going to a Cultural Studies PhD in Queens University Canada with an impeccable supervisor and also Canadian universities are doing the kind of work I am interested in. The supervisor's interests are in Transgender studies and Cultural production, and I want to work in the same with the field being South Asia. It's a game between course and prestige. What matters more? If I get through GATES, should I go for Cambridge despite the fact that the supervisor isn't as apt as Queen's (no comparison, really). Does ranking of a uni matter more than the supervisor? I personally feel I did a mistake of applying to Cambridge, which doesn't really have academics working in trans/queer theory as much as "small" universities do. They selected me probably because My research is the first of its kind for their department. As of now, it feels they need me more than I need them. Please help me out. As of now, I am leaning towards Queens. Being a GATES scholar is tempting, but will it be worth it?
  6. 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?
  7. 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?

    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?

  10. 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.

    Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill, NC

    I am a 2015 grad, B.A. in English/Sociology with a minor in GWST. My end goal is to get a Ph.D in American Studies but I know getting an M.A. first will A. be good prep and B. help my chances to get into a fully funded program. Because there are a limited number of AMST schools I am also applying to a few General Interdisciplinary Humanities programs, one of which is Duke. I am having a hard time finding information on the program though as it is very small and I would really appreciate any information that anyone has on it/Humanities programs generally. Cheers!
  12. 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?
