Hi all! I've been looking for a thread relating to gender/women's studies phd program applications and haven't found any for 2021's application cycle. I'm sure this week and the next few weeks will be full of anxiety for many of us but I hope this thread will help us connect with each other to feel a little bit better. I'm waiting to hear back from Arizona State myself. Best of luck to everyone!
Hi everyone! I'm a little late coming to the cycle for this year, but better late than never. My problem is that I just don't know where to start. I'm going to graduate with a Master's in Political Science (UN and Global Policy Studies at Rutgers University) in May and I want to pursue a PhD but I'm just not sure what department might be a good fit. I'm looking at International schools as well as US based schools. I do have a few professors who have said they'd write me letters of recommendation. My biggest issue is I can't figure out how to put all my interests together in a cohesive way. My research interests run along the lines of cultural attitudes, mental health issues, democracy, globalization, gender inequality, sustainable development, identity, and democracy. I'm currently interested in how social/racial/gender/economic inequalities affect democratic participation. Also I have no idea how to start reaching out to people in departments that might be interested in working with me. Advice?
