PhD Comics: ‘The Power of Procrastination’

Join Jorge Cham, the man behind the hugely popular PhD Comics, for a fun and informal talk about his experiences in bringing humour into the lives of stressed out PhDs! The talk, which takes place at Cardiff University on Wednesday 17 April at 4:30pm in the Julian Hodge Building, will also examine the source of PhD anxieties and explore the guilt, the myth, and the power of procrastination.

Jorge has travelled to over 150 universities and research centres around the world, lecturing and hearing graduate students from all walks of life share their stories of academic anxiety and de-motivation. Described as ‘humourous, thought-provoking and helpful’, this talk will be the perfect escape for a busy PhD or Supervisor.

After the talk, Jorge will be doing a Q&A session, and then there will be a chance to socialise with a cheese and wine reception. Soft drinks will also be available.

Booking will be opened to all from 25th March (until then only members of Cardiff University can book), and places can be booked via EventBrite.
