WendyMoira Posted February 27, 2012 Share Posted February 27, 2012 Congratulations, friends! I'm a longtime lurker and secretly congratulate people, but now I figured I would chime in and say it for real. Cornell is quite the accomplishment. Enjoy the glow! Aeplo, what field? Sigh...children's literature. I love it, but I'm really sick of having to defend my interests at this point. I feel like I spent half my personal statement explaining my specific interests and half of it clarifying everything I *don't* want to study, lest the adcomm misunderstand me and think I want to write about Twilight for the next seven years. Really I applied for Victorianism with an emphasis on child labor and affected family structures, but even so, it's kind of a fringe specialty. Oh well, UT-Austin apparently wants a kidlit person, and they have Julia Mickenberg in their American Studies dept, so I'm pretty thrilled.
