    SOAS South Asian Studies Masters

    Has anyone completed or in in the process of completing their Masters at SOAS in South Asian Studies ? How is the program ? Any thoughts and comments would be appreciated. Is it more politics based ? or history based ? What is the teaching faculty like ? Thinking of applying to this program...
  3. Hey everyone, My area is a bit niche, and I'm working on putting together a writing sample at the moment. I'm a first division BA, MA, Mphil holder from Delhi University, and I'm an ad-hoc teacher at the English department at Hindu College currently. I worked on participatory fandom cultures, fans as creators and the clash of signification between media producers and fans for my MPhil degree. It was a dissertation rooted in years of spectatorship - as an Indian fan in overwhelmingly white fan spaces dedicated to the consumption of Anglophone media, I was interested in documenting the kind of fan production and community I saw around me. Still, I've reoreinted my interests. Now I want to look at fanfiction written by Indian fans for Indian TV serials like Qubool Hai, Bepannah, etc. I'm interested in questions of form - very interesting things are happening to the form of fanfic itself. Driven by IndiaForums, Wattpad or Tellyupdates, Indian fanfiction differs in its familiarity with the established, informal 'rules' for formatting, style, length, classification, etc. Many are irregularly or inconsistently formatted. The users writing in are overwhelmingly female, as is the audience for most Indian soaps. TV serials deal with the drama of the domestic and the familial, and most fanfictions deal with the same. There's a vast degree of difference in users' competency in English, too. It is a rich corpus of fan production in an under-theorised and mischaracterised area - Indian televisual media consumption in the 'age of the internet' (which arrived much later in India, or, still is arriving in many parts of the country). I'm interested in both diasporic engagements with Indian TV fanfiction (as a guilty pleasure, a return to a certain ethnic identity) as well as native Indian writers. To this end, I am familiar with both Western theorisations of fandom (Jenkins, Booth, Hills, etc) and am studying archival material for Indian traditions of fan writing I am looking for the right departments to approach! Frankly, a little overwhelmed at all the choice. I'm not picky about Top 100/50/whatever. I'm applying for Spring 2019. Any and all comments, suggestions and barbs are welcome.
  4. Hello everyone, I am hoping to apply to a graduate program in anthropology this calendar year. My research interests, broadly speaking, involve perceptions ofcommunal identity in South Asia and its intersection with historical, political, religious, and ideological processes. However, I am also interested in religion, spirituality, and cultural interpretations of the "human journey". Given these broad topics and my interest in South Asia, I am looking for recommendations for suitable graduate programs to which I might apply. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you! Austin J.

    SIPA vs SAIS 2016

    Another one of those long-time "lurkers," first time poster. Is anyone else deciding between SIPA and SAIS, or have suggestions for the pros + cons list? Although I'm doing a Asia/South Asia concentration, I'd appreciate any insights regarding the programs as a whole. One of the things I'm most curious about is about how folks here measure the programs' prestige. Although that won't be the defining factor, I still am not completely sure how to assess the "ranking" of the programs, outside of the TRIP/FP study from last year. Thanks in advance for your help!
  6. Hello, I applied to graduate school last year and got into Georgetown but without any funding. I'm going to take another stab at it and was wondering if people can recommend grad schools that have a strong South Asia program? Or polisci faculty who work on South Asia? Thanks a lot!
  7. I searched everywhere, but I can't find a single professor in the US that focuses on Bhutan. i want to get a graduate degree in South Asian Studies, but I want my focus to be on Bhutan. Is this impossible? Does anyone know of any universities that have someone who specializes on Bhutan?
