Hello! I thought I would start a thread for women's/feminist/gender studies applicants for fall 2017 to share stories, provide support, etc! I am so nervous... I have applied to four phd programs: emory, ucsc, ucla, and stonybrook, and 3 american studies phd programs: yale, harvard, and nyu. I really want to get in somewhere!! This application process has been so stressful, I'd hate to have to do it again. Where are y'all applying? How has the application process been for you?
abenz posted a topic in Interdisciplinary StudiesHello! This might seem really early but I'm working on my grad school applications for entry next year and wanted to see if anyone else is doing the same? So far my Gender/Women's Studies options are: Emory University of Maryland University of Wisconsin-Madison (sociology) Indiana University-Bloomington University of York (UK) University of Sussex (UK) (Possibly) University of Arizona (Possibly) Western University in Canada My research interests are around embodiment, reproductive health, contraception, phenomenology, agency, contraceptives as icon/symbol of femininity - all the fun stuff! I work in development/SRHR overseas now and already have my MSc, but still not sure what my chances will be! Is anyone applying to U of Az or Western that could talk about what appeals? The course at Western would be amazing for me but I hear that London Ontario is a terrible place to live ... Also, what's a good number to apply to? The UK university applications aren't due for a while so focusing on those in the US/Canada for now! Looking forward to hearing from others! Ams
Hi everyone! I'm starting to look at university applications for a potential PhD in autumn 2018 and I've come across Women's Studies and Feminist Research at Western University, Ontario. I really like the look of the program but I know that it's fairly new. Are there any Western students on here who might be able to chat about the program and how they're finding it? My interests are in linking sociology and phenomenology, especially focusing on contraceptives and reproductive technologies, so the department of WSFR seems like a good fit! Thanks Amelia
Hi all~~ I am recently preparing for my application to the PhD programmes in the U.S. I wanna wok on women and workplace justice. I want to explore opportunities from the feminist / women's studies departments in the US universities. So far I have looked into the one in UCSB, U of Washington, and U of Michigan. I am a little bit lost when I try to shortlist and find all these feminist departments. May I ask if any of you can provide me some insights as to which feminist departments I should also explore? Thanks very much!!
