Three-Minute Thesis Competition

The 3-Minute Thesis competition provides emerging language researchers with an opportunity to present their research to a diverse and general audience comprised of students, faculty, and non-specialist community members from various backgrounds. Without the help of notes and with only three minutes to present, participants must present the fundamental points and significance of their work in a clear, direct, and interesting way. Contestants must also impress a panel of judges, who will be looking for effective and clear presentations that are also highly engaging and entertaining.

This contest is based on the competition held during the 2019 Linguistic Society of America Institute held at UC Davis.

To apply:

Students (undergraduate and graduate) conducting in any language-related research are invited to submit an application. The form asks for a short (200-300 words) engaging description of your talk. Applications will be selected based on their potential to be accessible to the general public.
