Two Arts PhD candidates present in 3 Minute Thesis Finals

Two Arts PhD candidates presented in the 3 Minute Thesis Finals on Tuesday 8 September.

The 3 Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a national competition celebrating the exciting research conducted by PhD candidates.

PhD candidates have just three minutes and one slide to effectively explain their research to a non-specialist audience. In the best interests of public health, the 2020 3MT Competition has moved to a virtual format, and competitors have submitted a pre-recorded video of their 3MT presentation.

Tamika Glouftsis represented the School of Humanities with her presentation 'Boring History is so last century'. She argued how digital interactive media like video games could help deliver history in an engaging way.
