I'm soliciting advice which will enable a conspicuously bright British
student to find a place on a postgraduate course which will answer her
intellectual interests. She hopes to find  a North American postgraduate
program which has a strong element of youth and documentary film and
television. Her dissertation topic (our students all produce a research
dissertation for their undergraduate degrees) is "Moral panics and the
teenager in film".
A further requirement for Sarah Dean is that she be able to apply for
financial assistance, in the first instance for an M.A., then expanding
or continuing into doctoral study. It is unlikely that Sarah can gain a
Fulbright: a student from this Department (now on NYU's Performance
program) picked up both the British and Irish Fulbright award. The
Commission sees to it that lightning never strikes twice... She will
require some sort of help. She's not afraid of hard work and has held
outside jobs throughout her university course.
If you can guide her to your course (or to your colleague's course),
please write to her, not to me, at her e-mail address:
Sarah Dean

She and I will be grateful.
With thanks,
