This just happened to me. Ask me anything (that won't reveal my identity)

was it on polygenderqueer acceptance in nazi germany

Careful op, i like publisher tush. Put up too much info and you might get a visit.

Late 80s. A youth culture in a socialist country and the regimes response to it. I am only the second historian to write about it.

Whelp. English is not my first language and I am scanning some books. So yeah my post didn't have my full attention.
>>
>>572619
No, You are close tho but I won't say no more on this specific subject since I would be identified by anyone who knows how to google properly.

>some cucks picked up western tv and radio
>dictator made a token effort to stop it but didn't really care because it is a good distraction
Is there more to it than this?
>>
>>572670
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.

>>572586
Congratulations, I hope somebody out there is proud of you.
>>
>>572586
Which university did you do your undergraduate at?
>>
Congratulations m8 I hope it gets well read and cited by many.
>>
>>572693
Yepp, there is.
>>572649
I want to learn Polish but I am not from your country m8.
>>572697
Doubt it but it will probably help me getting a scholarship.
>>572702
Thanks.
>>572697
I am a little fuzzy about the American system but I studied at pic related.
>>
80s Belgrade ?
>>
>>572777
No.
What happened there? Time and space seem interesting but I know little about Jugoslavia.
>>
>>572717
Is humboldt good for foreign students? I'm interested in the global history MA but I don't speak german... (I'll learn it someday)
>>
>>572955
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.
>>
>>572586
>make to papers out of it
How did you do that with such a shitty sense of grammar?
>>
>>573153
I don't know. Maybe I found a loophole and managed to get it done in one of the few languages that aren't English.
>>
>>572984
I'm from Italy, people here take a day off from work every few months just to deal with bureaucratic stuff

My body is ready
>>
What's your 5-year plan? Tenure track is already competitive in the sciences, I can only imagine how hard it is in the humanities.
>>

DDR?

Two papers out of MA thesis? That's breddy gud

>>572611
Sounds neat

Anime?
>>
>>572685
Thanks OP. I was just recently thinking about how pop culture is somewhat important, and I feel like it's effects on different eras are not well documented.
>>
>>572836
>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.
>>
>>576108
Did you contact a supervisor? Did they accept you?
>>
>>576112
No and I don't know yet. I haven't been contacted, is that not normal?
>>
>>576112
I'm in MERICA if that matters.
>>
>>573556
German university bureaucracy is overvalued imho. At least it's centralised. French university bureaucracy on the other, boy don't get me started...
>>
>>572627
Czechoslovakian underground music and legal actions against it? Plastic people of the Universe and such?
>>
>>573556
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.
>>573579
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.
>>576068
:^)
>>576075
It was 80 pages and I actually had to leave out a lot. My PhD will continue with the same subject I hope.
>>576083
Nah.
>>576091
History is always slow detecting new trends. There are only a few good studies on popular culture and I agree. It is very important.
>>576108
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.
>>576242
Lel one of the guys who published me is actually an expert on this stuff, but no.
>>576229
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.
>>
>>576114
I would say it is. Those journals work slowly.
>>
>>576114
Wait are we talking about a journal or a graduate program?

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.

Sounds neat. Did you publish through a publishing house or yourself?
>>
>>576837
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.
>>
>>576830
maybe if you were a good writer you'd have done better
>>
>>576852
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.
>>
>>576848
That's pretty cool. Cheers

>>576863
I was just baiting m8 don't take me seriously, of course success amounts to shit this day and age.

>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
>>
>>576801
Sorry, I fucked up. They both are slow though. I would just inquire what is up and when you can accept the result.
>>576802
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.
>>576811
Sounds about right and confirms my experience.
>>576830
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.
>>576893
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.
>>
how do i get a qt /his/ gf?
>>
Good job, OP.

Kinda jelly. Not sure what I'll do my thesis about yet.
