So I’m researching PhD programs and trying to choose a specialization. I basically have a really wide field of interest when it comes to literature; I like medieval and early modern literature, the 19th century Gothic, the American modern, Romanticism…all of which are very respectable areas to specialize in. However the areas I find myself most drawn to are Folklore and Pop Culture. Literature of the people, you know?
So then the problem arises, do I pick a comparative studies program or an English program?
But besides that, what I’m most excited about is having a doctorate in fairy tales and comic books.
Oh and also the school I apply to has to have a Russian language program because I really want to learn that shit.
