But damn. Isn't 'academic interests' a little broad, considering how everything -- rap music, sitcoms, pastries -- is considered 'academic', so long as it's prepended by a 'history of' or 'semiotics of'? They just want you to summarize your interests, leave out the committed part, and then delve into the problems you find engaging in each? In the space of a few inches? I mean, what do I zero in on, here? Ecstasy and incontinence in Elizabethan fiction? Patriarchy and the celebrity nip-slip? Because that's a lot to choose from, and then 'problematize', in a few hundred words.
