  1. Can anyone recommend a strong program for studying postcolonial theory? Thanks.
  2. Hi everyone, I'm applying to PhD programs in Fall 2017 but a lot of faculty I have contacted have given me a mixed response regarding as to where my research interest fits. I already have a detailed proposal of my topic (I'm also applying to the UK, as well as the US, and the UK requires a detailed one), which focuses on the Middle East, nationalism, and Orientalism. After sharing with some anthropologists my idea, which they said they were interested in, they also said that my focus on Orientalism is more related to cultural studies than anthropology (which I don't particularly understand as I know that anthropologists have used Orientalism, which they also agreed that anthropologists have done). I would like to learn from to use the methodologies of anthropology. But, I'm very interested in studying society using postcolonial or critical theory - which it appears is not so relevant in anthropology? (please correct me if I'm wrong). Meanwhile, Middle East programs such as those at Columbia have a very strong focus on critical theory and postcolonial theories, which is what I want. But, they will not give me the disciplinary training (or degree) that I would like from Anthropology. Any feedback on this is greatly appreciated, as my academic background is not in anthropology and I'm quite confused about the disciplines and fields right now.
