Inaugural 3 Minute Thesis Competition

Congratulations to all those who participated in the inaugural 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition at the University of Divinity.

The 3MT competition invites research candidates to present their research to an audience in 3 minutes. Most PhDs are 80,000 – 100,000 words long and would take hours to read. Imagine the demand of condensing this down to 3 minutes!

Three brave PhD candidates took up the challenge on Wednesday September 20. The winner of the event was Dachan Kim, with Adam Couchman coming in as runner up. Both Dachan and Adam will go on to compete against the winners from other theological institutions. Dachan, Adam and Mark each shared in the prize pool of $1,000 which they can use towards their ongoing research.

The 3MT was preceded by research lightening talks, where three faculty and one PhD candidate provided a brief insight into their current projects. Those who participated were Kara Saiosi (PhD candidate), Dr Michelle Eastwood (ALC), Dr Paul Daniels (Trinity) and Professor Glen O’Brien (EBC). The afternoon was a great showcase of some of the fascinating research being done within the University.
