A General Idea of What I Study

Jorge Cham’s PhD Comics is a stroke of genius, lampooning Academia and graduate students. While the comic strips are mainly taken from the sciences, occasionally it would feature the (hilarious but very accurate) life and times of graduate students.

The latest comic strip publication was so “on the spot” that I couldn’t stop laughing at it. While I’m not a “popular culturalist” per se, many of the things mentioned on the comic strip relates to my line of research, namely the dissemination of power and hegemony on today’s society, which is almost and exclusively invisible. Anyway, I give Jorge Cham full credit for this ingenious comic. He has really captured the ethos of the graduate student.
