In the midst of everything we've been through in the last year and, well, the first month of 2021, I wanted to share some good news! This morning I just received my letter of acceptance for the PhD program in history at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I will start in the Fall 2021 semester. I'm quite excited! Yes, I'm 45, will be 46 when I start the program, but I feel far more focused now than I did when I got my MA in 2004 (I had a toddler and two elementary-aged kids at home). All my kids are grown, and my personal life has settled down (divorce in 2017 and I've been with my boyfriend for a year now), so I'm eager to start! I'll be focusing on American fascists and fascist/nationalist movements of the 1930s, early 1940s and leading into WW2. That's the plan right now, but that could change once I get into the program. But whatever it is, it'll be something related to WW2!
