The Obermann Center's 2022 Humanities Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) competition will take place on Thursday, Sept. 29, 2022, from 4:30–5:30 p.m. at the Iowa City Public Library (Room A). It will be an in-person event, free and open to all.

This 3MT is specially designed to feature the work of UI humanities graduate students. The event challenges graduate students to articulate their complex research clearly and concisely to nonspecialist audiences in three minutes or fewer. The presented research can be a student’s thesis or PhD work, research related to an internship or other outside project, or research pertaining to a specific class. The only requirement is that it is the student’s research and that it has a humanities focus. The winner will receive $250 and directly advance to the campus-wide 3MT final. Obermann Humanities 3MT participants may or may not choose to participate in the campus-wide 3MT contest. The winner of the Obermann Humanities 3MT, however, will advance to and be required to participate in the UI finals.
