    I hear the British Government looks very kindly at post-graduate education. I hear they believe education is important, to us and to them, and that everybody should be allowed to go.

    Comics studies is also a growing discipline in this country. I got my Ph.D. from the University of Florida, which has a graduate track on Comics and Visual Rhetoric. And the University of Iowa is hosting a comics studies symposium next weekend.

    Yes, sorry I forgot the wistful sarcasm warning -- it is a right shame - nay, a crime! - that the academic field is being broadened only when the flow of students is being restricted.

    Laura, can you address the funding of this in a later article? I may not be the only graduate trying to bluff his way to a scholarship.

    Liverpool Hope does science fiction studies and I have no idea how I would campaign for funding for that from a research council. I'd love to go back to uni. Since I came out of uni I've been able to get one temp job lasting 6 months and I just feel useless. I can't help but think that the money they spend on my JSA would be better focused on further education.
