Our People Making Waves!

Jessica.jpgUJ Philosophy's Jessica van Jaarsveld has won the prize for 1st Runner-Up at the UJ 3-Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition for 2020!

This is what she had to say about the experience: "Condensing tens of thousands of words and three-plus years of research into a speech of 180 seconds for the 3MT competition was certainly a considerable challenge. Nonetheless, I enjoyed being pushed to really think about the crux of my thesis, and it was refreshing to think of how it should be presented to a non-philosophical audience. I used the opportunity as a valuable tool to self-reflect on my work and why it matters (to me and generally), and it was also interesting being able to get a few insights into what other students at UJ are working on."
