Roos3 Posted June 28, 2013 Share Posted June 28, 2013 I'm looking for doctoral programs, either for the fall of next year, or for a year or two down the road and after my master's, where I can pursue research that happens to combine works from a well-established canon with less canonical works. Specifically, I'm looking to do research on elements that appear in medieval works from northwestern Europe (principally Germanic and Celtic Europe), and that also carry over into modern works that draw inspiration from those sources (I would offer fantasy as a genre as one example of this, though it is not the only one). For instance, my undergraduate thesis dealt with the concept of Faërie, the Otherworld, as it appeared in Celtic mythology, Norse mythology, English literature, and Tolkien's works. I imagine that it is probably difficult to find programs and advisors for research of this kind, so I am posting to get suggestions of departments to look into and individuals to potentially contact. I have already been pursuing this with my undergraduate professors, so I am looking to supplement their advice. Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
