This just happened to me. Ask me anything (that won't reveal my identity)
Yes. Also the state did care and the role of Western media in the 80s is highly debated. The problem is we can't really say what the American and British stations were broadcasting. There is no research on this; partly because all the files are in London and Washington.
Sort of depends. I think there a lot of English course you can attend to (also on other universities/faculties, it's no problem) but in general the German bureaucracy is insane for some people. So check what you have to file in to go there. If you can manage to do it you will probably have a good time.
>Time and space seem interesting
Time and space are interesting since we're bound by them and all.
How hard is it to get published? I'm trying to get my PHD in History, still no word on acceptance. Should I be worried yet? I applied for the Fall 2016 term.
Ok. You will have a good time then I guess but I hope your English is good. Lots of Italians seem to have a shitty English.
Get an academic scholarship in the next few months; write my PhD-thesis in the next 3. During that time I will visit a shit load of conferences for networking purposes. I already got some ideas for a post-doc subject.
It was 80 pages and I actually had to leave out a lot. My PhD will continue with the same subject I hope.
History is always slow detecting new trends. There are only a few good studies on popular culture and I agree. It is very important.
To me it was easy desu. Did not even have a perfect grad but people seem to have liked my work. I think the most important thing is to have a very clear idea about what your paper wants to say. I also emailed with the editors before sending in my stuff and I had friends reviewing it before I sent it.
Lel one of the guys who published me is actually an expert on this stuff, but no.
Yeah but he was asking about Humboldt in particular and to me it was always a pain in the ass to get stuff done there. France is worse for sure.

Depends. The big ol' places like Sorbonne are terrible. It's like they live in a parallel universe where it's still 1800 or something. Newer institutions, particularly Science Po are very efficient on the other hand (not sure SP has history depts though).
I dropped out of University in my last year of Network Communications (Internet and Phones), and I've since been published twice, under two different names.
One was poetry for children, and the other looking at the few main theories about a certain migration period tribe and the country they founded, where they came from, and so on.
Both books probably sold like 500 copies combined. Trying to make a living as an author just isnt worth it, and even as a hobby its so soul crushing when your hard work only gets appreciated by a very small number of people.
Through publishing houses. They got the fonts, cover, illustrations for the kids book and all taken cared of.
The historical themed book was published by the country's largest academic publisher, the poetry by a small fantasy/scifi publisher that recently tries selling stuff like toys, board games and puzzles in their brick&mortar stores.
Both were my first try, so I havent been rejected even once thus far, which is the only redeeming factor of my authoring career. I get paid peanuts, and I wasnt offered to write another thing like that, which they both said I might be, but thats how things go I suppose.
I initially wrote a big response saying how I've spoken with other authors on some conventions of sorts, but then again I am guessing the only people who'd attend such an anonymous alcoholics tier gathering would be unsuccessful (and thus according to you bad) authors.
I'll just say that I think its more about luck than skill and leave it at that. My only argument is that I've read many good and unpopular books, and many bad and popular ones.
Anyways, my programmer career is doing better than my writing one, so I'm not starving any day soon.
>Ask me anything (that won't reveal my identity)
yeah why are you attentionwhoring on an anonymous sumerian cuneiform tablet? i got my MA thesis published as a book but you don't see me making threads on /his/ about it to wank over the admiration of strangers on the internet
Sorry, I fucked up. They both are slow though. I would just inquire what is up and when you can accept the result.
You don't have to believe but believe me when I say I care more about what I write in a paper than on 4chan while dodging work.
Sounds about right and confirms my experience.
Mate 500 is huge. It is not unusual to pay the publisher to give a way some copies for free so they big universities have it available.
Partly cause I had no idea about how to get my shit out there and thought I might offer advice and because I got some free time on my hands but still have to sit at the computer. Also right now you are the one attenwhoring by adding the second redundant phrase to your already pretty weak post.
