    I've decided to graduate at the end of this year (2015). I need 69 credit points to graduate successfully at my university, and I already have about 80. I also have to write a capstone essay (of 5000 words) on a Ancient History topic.

    In addition, I'm doing two other 5000 word research essays this year. (One on the role of male-to-male prostitution in the rise of Kabuki theatre in 17th C. Japan. And another, that will argue that there was a close connection between the savage war the USA (from 1899) fought to subject the Philipinnes to American rule and the Communist victory in China (1949).

    What then about next year - Well, Macquarie has an interesting Masters degree called Master of Research. I'm thining about that!!!

    After that, ???????

    footnote: I nearly forgot, I enrolled in a Social Science study unit also. I've concluded that Sociology is an important tool in historical research.

    you might do something on the place in Australian society of the aged and how they are treated in 'Care' homes. Believe me all the horror stories you hear are true.

    What a lot of hard work -- but you seem to really enjoy research and study. I've enjoyed your history threads -- some interesting stuff I might not have read about otherwise.
