3MT competition at CEU won by our PhD student, Dan Knox

August 17, 2018

"Central European University hosted its first ever Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition on June 18. 

Hosted by the Dean of Students' Office, the competition featured presentations by 10 CEU doctoral students covering a wide range of research topics, from the cognitive processes of babies through bank bailouts to ethical farming. Each student had 180 seconds to give a compelling presentation on their thesis and its significance. ..."

The winner is our dear PhD student, Dan Knox with his topic "Sixth Century Social Media." "Knox put forward compelling arguments about why sixth-century letters can be analyzed as social media, drawing similarities between Donald Trump’s Twitter feed and his medieval primary sources." We are very proud!
