CFP - PAMLA 2019 Special SessionVeterans Studies - Humor in the Military
This roundtable will explore the liminal role of graduate students who teach or TA courses while also working on their own graduate coursework. In particular, this session will examine the way that engaging in and constantly switching between these two classroom roles may cause qualities from each role to interpenetrate with both positive and negative effects on the graduate student. This session welcomes shorter 10-minute presentations of academic or nonfiction meditations on graduate students who negotiate their teaching and studying roles.
