  1. Hey, Folks! I have been investigating various programs but thought I would crowd-source for additional insight or suggestions: I'm planning on applying to phd programs this coming fall to research the way gender (and particularly masculinity) is policed and performed, especially among adolescents, and especially vis-à-vis social media. I'm interested in the ways Instagram, for example, both expands and contracts ideas about "optimal" and optional gender performance. More generally, I am interested in the way media (soc med/tv/internet) and institutions (school, gov) shape these concepts and the way these communities evolve. So far, I have looked into sociology, media/comm, and gender studies programs at the following schools: UMich (soc, comm); Northwestern (soc [they have SPAN for soc of sexuality], media/tech/society), UChic (soc); UWisc (soc, comm); UT Austin (soc, comm); and OSU (soc, gender studies). When I comb through scholarly articles, however, I sometimes find that the scholars are in anth or even psych depts, and, overall, the scholars tend to come from all over, including lots of European unis or places that don't offer phd programs. I would prefer to stay in the Midwest to be drivable to family (and the lower cost of living); programs in NYC and CA are programmatically/philosophically appealing but sound financially even more challenging than a phd will baseline be. I am planning to apply mostly to competitive programs, as well, for the sake of funding (I am currently a full-time teacher, so not getting in somewhere this year doesn't spell disaster) and future employability (as an academic or beyond). My own academic background is competitive though lacking in research; I'll have to make the case that my life experiences as a gay/queer man (theatre actor and teacher) inform, enrich, and compel my research proposal. I am hoping someone with similar interdisciplinary interests might be able to offer some insight or feedback--I'd greatly appreciate it!
  2. Hi all! I'm looking for PhD programs in environmental studies with an interdisciplinary approach - ideally, a program that'll be supportive of combining environmental studies with perspectives and methodologies such as anthropology, queer studies, postcolonialism and/or animal studies. Got any leads? I've heard of a few programs that might do that: The Institute for the Environment & Sustainability at UCLA The E-IPER (Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources) at Stanford The Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society at the University of Munich I'll be glad to hear of more if you know any, and if there's anyone here who have studies or studies in one of these programs, I'd love to hear about your experiences. Thanks!

  4. This one is for all my "literature & language" folks. I'm currently teaching two recitations for introduction to literary theory. We've gone through structuralism, deconstruction, and psychoanalysis thus far. In the next couple of weeks, we are tackling feminist and queer theory. I really want to get my students to engage--especially with a topic that is so important and prominent in our current lives. Does any one have any advice for how to approach this?
  5. Hey all, I'm prepping for my first interview at UChicago and feel fairly confident about most things, but attire is (as usual) tricky. I identify as agender (they/them pronouns) and have been out in my academic and professional life for three years now. My lab and everyone I've met at the NIH have been incredibly accepting in the past two years of me working here, and I'd like to continue to be out and referred to in a way that makes me feel comfortable. A few of my applications asked for pronouns, and UChicago is one of them. Therefore, I feel comfortable presenting as myself for that interview. What about the other ones though? Do I shake hands and say my pronouns after my name? Should I try to pass as cis? I know two of them will be accepting (a friend of mine at UPenn will give the admissions folks the heads-up about my pronouns), but the other two are up in the air. Any other GQ/NB folks going through this or went through this already? Any advice?
