The Power of Procrastination with Jorge Cham

Register here for the lecture and book signing event on The Power of Procrastination with Jorge Chamcreator of PHD Comics  on the 19th March 2018 at 10am in W011, Hamish Wood Building, Glasgow Caledonian University. 

Jorge Cham is the creator of Piled Higher and Deeper (PHD Comics), the popular comic strip about life (or the lack thereof) in Academia. PHD Comics has appeared in the Stanford, MIT, Caltech and Carnegie Mellon newspapers among others, and is published online where it is read by over 7 million visitors a year from over 1000 universities and colleges worldwide. Five PHD Comics book collections have been published with over 100,000 copies sold.

In his lectures, Jorge Cham recounts his experiences bringing humour into the lives of millions of stressed out academics and tells stories from his travels to over 300 universities and research centres in the US and across the world. Thought-provoking yet humorous, Jorge's talks examine the source of academics' anxieties, explore the myth of procrastination, and help academics figure out how to convey what they've learned to the outside world. Although this lecture will be hosted in GCU it is open to external research students and staff.
