Rhetoric & Composition PhD candidate Sarah Bramblett placed second in the Three Minute Thesis doctoral competition. Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a research communication competition which helps to develop academic, presentation and research communication skills. It supports the development of students’ capacities to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience. Graduate students have three minutes to present compelling orations on their thesis or dissertation topics and their significance. You can view the GSU finalists’ presentations at

Sarah is currently working on “Recollecting Romantic Rhetoric—An Inquiry into Categorical Confusion and Cohesion,” a dissertation about research related to romantic rhetoric and the under appreciated value romanticism offers the rhetorical tradition. Using a narrative approach of recollection, Sarah hopes to help contemporary composition teachers utilize the cohesive historic roots of imagination and reason, emotion and logic.

Sarah is also one of this year’s recipients of the Wade Family Endowment Award.
