PhD The Movie: competition winner

November 10, 2011




"Don't look so worried; this paper is innovative, creative, lucid and brilliant. But enough about my work."

This caption, for the cartoon above, has won Simon Wright of Sheffield two free tickets to the screening next week of PhD The Movie, the film adaptation of Jorge Cham's cult comic strip, Piled Higher and Deeper. Times Higher Education is sponsoring question-and-answer sessions with Dr Cham at a sold-out event at the University of Oxford on 15 November, and an event organised by the University College London Union on 14 November, which will be hosted by the comedian and broadcaster Robin Ince. Tickets are still available for the London event, held at the Institute of Education's Logan Hall. Tickets can be purchased on the door. Doors open at 6.30pm and the film will begin at 7pm.
