The History Department had two PhD candidates participate in Fordham’s 2023 Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition. Open to all students enrolled in a GSAS master’s or doctoral program, the Three Minute Thesis, is a research communication competition developed in 2008 by The University of Queensland in Australia. Students have 3 minutes to present their research orally with the help of a single slide.
Douglass Hamilton, PhD Candidate in the History Department, presented his work entitled “The Knight God Forgave: Longinus and the Negotiation of Knightly Piety c. 1000- c. 1300”. Patrick DeBrosse, another PhD Candidate in the History Department, also participated with his work entitled “The Empire Strikes a Chord”.
Doug was awarded 2nd Place overall in the competition by this year’s judges. Doug also won the “People’s Choice Award”, an award voted on by the in-person and virtual audience. Congratulations Doug!
