"I am entering the third year of the Ph.D. program in English at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, majoring in 19th century American literature and minoring in African American literature. I am also the editor of an online journal of American Studies (Sycamore: A Journal of American Culture), which can be found at http://www.unc.edu/sycamore."

"As I perceived the program, it was designed less as a stepping stone to the English Ph.D. than as a kind of vocational training ground for students interested in applied computer technology -- which could, nonetheless, make use of a reasonable background in language, cultural studies, American history, etc. Given the current state of the job market for English Ph.D.s, this clearly represents a practical alternative to the usual route for graduate students."
