Advisers and subfields


Recommended Posts

Depends on what you mean by this. If you what you mean is that you are interested in working with some faculty in a different subfield, that's totally fine (e.g., I want to study bureaucracy in Japan using network methods - express interest in CP scholar who does political parties in Japan + Americanist who does US bureaucracy + IR scholar who's an expert in network statistics). If you're trying to say that you want to primarily work with someone who works outside the subfield you claim as your main area, then that should raise red flags in your head. If you want to work on a topic, which you think is IR, but all the people working on it are comparativists, then you're probably (a) actually a budding comparativist or (B) misunderstanding something. Either way you need to evaluate what your real interests are and where they fit into the discipline.
