Overtime: A Symposium on Graduate Student Work is a public forum for discussion about the many kinds of work that graduate students perform in their day-to-day lives. Although they are, first and foremost, scholars, graduate students must balance their scholarly obligations with outside employment and family responsibilities, often while striving to maintain a connection to the broader community through volunteer activity, artistic practice, and political activism. In other words, graduate students are always working overtime, a fact that is not always well understood by university administrators, government officials, or funding agencies. The symposium will highlight the contributions that graduate students make to university and community life, as well as the difficulties that many face in trying to make ends meet along the way.
