Three minutes isn't much time to give directions to the nearest coffee shop, let alone explain a 50,000 word doctoral dissertation that has taken years to research and write. That's exactly what we're asking our doctoral candidates to do in the 3rd Annual UVa Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition. What's more - we're asking these competitors to do so without props or discipline-specific jargon to lay audiences.
