I am doing a PhD at University of Manchester. I am doing it on the Australian Coal Industry and climate change. (I wanted to do an ethnographic study of Manchester’s climate policy-makers, but for reasons that defy explanation, I was refused access…).
Anyway I made it into the final of the University’s “Three Minute Thesis” competition. So if you want to see 11 really great 3 minute presentations, and mine, then come along on Wednesday! Its free, and you register here.
Three Minute Thesis ® (3MT) challenges doctoral candidates to present a compelling spoken presentation on their research topic and its significance in just three minutes.
In the UK, the 3MT national competition final is hosted by Vitae. Individual UK universities run their own competitions, to put forward one winner per participating Institution. The University of Manchester is one of 40 Institutions participating in 2016.
This is the Manchester final. Where 12 UoM students successful in their heats will present to the public audience and judges for glory and a £500 first prize.
Join us to enjoy these presentations and a free drinks reception.
