My Grad School Journey

Marissa Loving (Illinois Math)

Abstract: In this talk, I will tell the story of my journey through grad school. I will attempt to be as blunt as possible about the ups and downs I have experienced and touch on some of the barriers I have encountered (both internally and externally). If you have ever felt like you donít belong or worried that you have made others feel that way, this talk is for you.

How to Become a Liberated Mathematician in 13+3 Painful Years

Piper Harron (University of Hawai'i at Mānoa )

Abstract: Piper H never wanted to be liberated. She would have much preferred to be conventionally successful, living by other people's standards. Though she tried, she couldn't make herself fit. You can say she has some complaints. Some people want to spread her message, other people think she needs to go away forever. In this talk Piper lets you in on the secret that actually she's just a very tired person trying to find more time for naps.
