Inquiring minds want to know

Do to popular demand it has been requested that I expand upon my last post about what I would be studying. (By popular demand, I mean one of my favorite people in the whole world requested I give more details - and because this favorite person of mine used to take care of me when I was a kid, I feel I owe her. Lol.)

I have applied to study for a PhD in Social Policy at the University of New South Wales @ Social Policy Research Center. This is a research degree - that would consist of 3-4 years of research culminating in a dissertation of about 100,000 words (or something near that.)

I have proposed to research income inequality and redistribution of wealth in democracies worldwide taking special note of how electoral systems effect redistribution. I'd tell you more but I am afraid one of two things would happen (1) I'd bore you to death (2) all those unnamed faceless scholars trolling the internet for brilliant ideas might stumble upon my blog and steal my ideas before I have the chance to publish all my brilliance. Ha ha ha ha. =P

Yay, Sam! That actually sounds really fascinating. I'm in the writing stage of my Ph.D -- trying to finish and start my postdoc by August.

If, in 3-4 years, you need someone to read and proofread, I will happily do so.

I'm so proud to have a "big sister" as smart passionate and dedicated as you. You should know that you are part of the reason I'm in school and have been considering continuing my education. Thanks for being an inspiration. I love you! Tara.
