writing bio for dept. website


Recommended Posts

I am trying to decide what to write about myself to put on my department's website, but it is a little intimidating, especially since I am just starting out and my research interests aren't as clearly defined as other people's. Anyone have any experience with this or advice on the topic?

if you don't have a masters topic yet, just list your past education and your current research fields.

I am still at the very beginning of my stuff, so mine is pretty basic, and based on our department's template. Here it is:

"My name...

U.S. South, Antebellum Period, Race, Atlantic World


Here I put my one non-departmental/undergrad award...


My one publication...


B.A., History and English, ________ 2009

MA/PhD Candidate, _______ University..."

I think this is enough. Some of the other first years have more detailed bios but many of them already have MAs.
