Hmm, I def thank my parents. They both have PhDs so they completely get it, and they've been nothing but remarkably supportive of their only kid being continents away :)

I'll thank my sup as she is the best mentor ever :)

I'll thank my friends as they've rocked, and I'm really lucky to have had supportive family, sup and friends who always in many ways prioritised me.

I can only suggest MECCSA list the media and comm association int he UK which has film stuff from time to time.

Why not ask people at Goldsmiths or Aber at Wales where they do film studies?

Generally media and comms list will have film stuff in it like radio tv and internet. Imp lists are IAMCR, ECREA, MECCSA

Yes, they are dishonest and crap. Like others like them. Like those who try to sell them, hook or by crook.

Well here you go - look at the posts here (all written by future examiners, might I say) and see how different the evaluation yardsticks are. Note though, that all of us who have posted here value high quality research and define it differently when it comes to the aeshtetics of presentation of the high quality content.

The spelling argument could be extended to the sociology of citation styles - dont get me started. I know someone who thinks anyone whomakes the tiniest error in APA 5th should be failed instantanously as it 'indicates deeper flaws'. To that I'd say bo&&*Cks.

I have discusssed this with my sup in the past and she says every examiner is different - so aPhD with no corrections is not necesarily flawless as compared to a great PhD with minor revisions. Pedantic examiners, who are old school, for instance, might interpret a single missing reference to be indicative of poor quality and suggest minor or major revisions to a great thesis. Someone who is moreeasy going on that account might gloss these over and focus on the same argument.

I think it is a good idea to not look for gradations in the result (they do exist - in germany for instance) as I think there's little point in being competitive. But it is a question of luck. If your examiners are known to be pedants or difficult to please,but will make for great referees and authors of blurbs on the back of your first book - well then, the choice is clear!

This happened to me - the editor sent it back w/o review saying it was not a fit for their journal.

Sup was furious (is also on editorial board of said journal) and wondered if the editor should be emailed but then said "nothing good ever comes out of these things, so send it somewhere else, for the paper is really good".
