3MT Winner Spotlight | Sophie Staires
Hood’s 5th annual Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) competition, an internationally recognized event in which graduate students use one slide and three minutes to present their chosen research topic, was held virtually for the first time this spring due to COVID-19.
Sophie Staires, a May 2020 graduate of Hood’s humanities program, won 1st place for her talk, "Justice in The Round House: Literature as a Tool for Social Justice." Sophie has been invited to continue on to compete in the 2020 Northeastern Association of Graduate School (NAGS)’s 3MT competition!
We spoke with Sophie to get some insight on why she chose to compete in Hood’s 3MT and how she feels about the opportunity to take her talk to the next level.
