It’s enough for me to be sure that you and I exist at this moment.

Art History (future) Graduate Wishlist | #1 Theory
As I’ve been winding down the semester, I’ve been absolutely focused on school, and haven’t updated as much as I would have liked. But I’m also already gearing up for school again in the fall. Ever the planner, I’ve been making list of books I’d love to have because books, like most of us going into the humanities, are among our greatest treasures.
- Complete your Dissertation or Thesis in Two Semesters or Less (this is a few years out, but good planning is the mark of getting something done on time.)
- The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed.
- Collecting China (by my advisor, Prof. Vimalin Rujivacharakul)
- Art in Theory 1648-1815
- Art in Theory 1900-200
- Modern Things: Objects and Their Histories
- Culture and Imperialism
- Art and Its Significance
My Future Title Will Be Dr. DNA: updates from The Museologist (who is going to get her PhD in Art History).
Images are of me and my Tata (Grandfather), myself, and my mother.
My graduate schools application began with three schools, then grew to four, and in the end, I was convinced to apply to seven. I could have been a little more stubborn about not applying to quite so many, but as anyone knows, the graduate applications process is a tricky one, rife with uncertainties. I consider myself to be an immensely flexible person who is fast on their feet, but a steadfast planner at heart.
I finally crossed off my plans B, C, and D for “What to do if I don’t get into graduate school.” today.
