After receiving countless requests from IU graduate students to host a screening of the PHD Movie at IU, we are finally making it happen!
Thanks to Midwest Crossroads Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), the writer, artist, and director behind PHD Comics and The PHD Movie, Jorge Cham, will be at the screening! He will do a brief introduction to the movie, then a talk/Q&A after the film, with an opportunity for book signing after the Q&A. Books and posters will be sold at the event.
“Piled Higher and Deeper” The Movie is a live-action adaptation of the popular online comic strip by Jorge Cham (www.phdcomics.com). It was filmed on location at and was produced in partnership with the California Institute of Technology (Caltech).
The film introduces audiences to the unique and funny culture of Academia and follows four graduate students (Cecilia, Mike, Tajel and the “Nameless Grad Student”) as they struggle to find balance between research, teaching and their personal lives with humor and heart.
Mark your calendars, and stay tuned for more details!
If your graduate student organization or department is interested in helping to sponsor the screening or help with publicity, please email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP and let us know what you’d like to help with.
