Here's a request for reader input, from your faithful blogger.
I enjoy doing this blog -- enjoy the reading and the writing, and receiving comments from readers is so gratifying. I'd like to take my understanding of the subject matter to another level, and I suspect this means formal education. Whether I could actually fit grad school into my life is an open question, but one I'm willing to consider.
Problem is, I don't know what academic subject or program I should be looking into. Is this blog about anthropology? Marine history? Nautical archaeology? Some obscure branch of naval architecture? Is it possible I'm barking up the wrong tree -- that a serious study of this subject falls somewhere outside of academia?
Your suggestions will be appreciated.
