  1. So here's the dilemma: I'm a pure math guy who's mostly interested in theoretical computer science, but also partly interested in theoretical machine learning. I've been accepted with similar funding yada yada to both UCLA and UC Irvine's CS PhD programs. The professor at UC Irvine more so matches my interests (graph theory, approximation algorithms, pure math-y stuff) and he's also highly distinguished, coming off a 15 year stint doing theory at Georgia Tech. The professor at UCLA is more engineering focused. There's a few questions I need answers to influencing my decision:
  2. This question always trips me up! Do I go broad and say that I'm a postmodernist or something? Or do I talk about the smaller scale theories I use from one or two writers? I never know how to go about answering questions about what theories I use in my research because often the articles we read don't usually say that I'm taking a specific type of approach. I'm in linguistic anthropology so I use a lot of semiotic theory, a lot of identity/interaction/discourse theory for discourse analysis, but I never know if they have actual labels. I get very tripped up by this question and I need to
  3. Hey y'all--anyone else apply to Duke Literature this cycle? Anyone else beside themselves waiting for the implied rejection/interview request? I'd also be curious to hear about y'all's areas of interest. I went all in on Lacanian theory, sound studies, ecocriticism, and theory of value. It would be unreal to work with scholars like Fredric Jameson, Antonio Viego, and Michael Hardt.
  4. Hi, I think I am posting this question/concern in the right place? Also, I preemptively apologize for this long post ... here we go My background: graduated 5 years ago from undergrad and am 100% on going back to graduate school in the next year. I was not the best student in undergrad until I found sociology (which I minored in) my 3rd year. Cumulative GPA is 2.88 but counting only anthropology and sociology classes (5 classes total) it is more like 3.5. Why I want to attend grad school: Ideally I would like to teach sociology in some capacity at a community college. If th
  5. Does anyone know which flagship schools have a really strong emphasis on theory/cultural studies? I'm only a literature person via my interest in theory. Specifically Foucault, Derrida, Lyotard, Frankfurt School of Marxism, Zizek, and/or Jodi Dean. I have yet to find one bio of someone saying they are an expert on foucault...
  6. I am planning to apply for PhD in Physics (2017 Fall). My research interest lies in Cosmology and Particle Physics (Theory). Last year also I tried to apply in the same field but got all rejections. This year my friends and seniors are suggesting me to apply in experimental physics and then change the field after getting admission as it is easy to get admission in experimental physics. But I don't have any research experience in experimental Physics. Any suggestions? GPA : 7.29/10 (overall) and 8.29/10 (physics) GRE: 302 Physics GRE: 720 TOEFL_ibt: 106
  7. What are the general reputations of BU and Northeastern for a PhD in theoretical computer science? Is one significantly better than the other? I like them both so its a tough decision... and funding is nearly identical
  8. Currently, many graduate programs seem to be shifting to a more methods-intensive course of study. While I understand the importance of methods, I am really interested in programs that more equally balanced or more theory-intensive. Any knowledge of programs like this would be extremely helpful.
  9. I semi-finalized the list of schools to apply for musicology phd programs based on the interests of their faculty matching mine, but would like to know from those "in the know" if the programs I chose would potentially be suspicious of my age. I'm 34 - spent the last ten years playing and teaching music - and now I want to finally go for the final degree. I know my age can look unambitious, compared to those applying at age 22. I was told by one professor it depends on the program. So if any of you are already in these programs, I would be grateful if you shared your comments and observations!
  10. Hi, I'm new here and was hoping to get some feedback on good fits for someone interested in media studies, visuality, and theory. In particular, I'm looking for MA or PhD programs and faculty that share my interests in the body, visuality, subjectivity, and desire. In terms of approaches, I tend to gravitate toward queer theory (Foucault primarily), aesthetics ( interested in applying Heideggerian notions of worlding to contemporary transnational art), and psychoanalysis. I know there are some obvious contenders out there (NYU, Brown, Duke), but I'm a bit worried because my grades aren't
  11. Hey everyone. I've got a question for those of you who are already doing your phd, finished, or professors, etc. So I've just graduated with a degree in politics, and I'm changing my field to comparative literature or english or media studies (Brown). There are a few schools in the US that I find ideal for my studies and interests. They got top scholars in the field and so on. Ok so my problem is that I got a gf who wants to move with me and I'm not American and neither is she so we'll need visas. But America doesn't allow your dependent to come and work there so she can't really come wit
  12. Hello all, I am entering my final year in the IB diploma and have chosen to complete my extended essay about oligopolistic pricing and interdependent behaviour with respect to prices in the UAE (where I currently live) international airline industry. This is data I have collected over the past month, consisting of prices of flights with the two largest airlines to nine different destinations, however I am struggling to analyse the data with consideration of the theory of interdependent pricing. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could enlighten me with methods of analyzing

    Reading List

    I am just posting this out of curiousity and a need for a serious distraction from the admissions waiting game. Anyone else intimidated by art history/art theory? Does anyone else have a list of books they feel that the need to get to at some point? What are you reading or what have you read?
  14. Hey, everyone. I'm pursuing grad school in Art History, and I'm looking for a program that is perhaps more theoretically focused than most other MAs in Art History. I'm currently completing my undergrad in Philosophy and History. I chose not to attend grad school in Philosophy because nearly all the programs in the US have little focus on aesthetics or philosophy of art, and I really do want to focus specifically on art theory more than the various other fields of philosophy or history. Any suggestions or advice you can give me? Am I pursuing an unrealistic goal here? I liked the look
  15. Greetings All, I am applying to Ph.D. programs in English this fall. The most useful knowledge I've gained from these forums thus far has been in the form of specific experiences with programs and knowledge of individual departments. I would really appreciate some input on the programs I am considering, but more importantly on other programs that I should consider. Here is my interest in a nutshell: My undergrad background is in Shakespeare, Joyce and Renaissance Italian works. I want my graduate work to focus on critical theory and the idea of authorial identity, particularly as it
