TEDxUofA: 'Aberration'

Friday, March 15, 2019 - 3:00pm

TEDxUofA returns to the University of Arizona campus with the second annual TEDx conference!

This year's theme is "Aberration," defined as a departure from what is normal, usual, or expected, typically one that is unwelcome. Our talks will challenge your expectations and preconceptions of science, law, philosophy and more.

  • "Why Innovation is Overrated"Matthew Mars, assistant professor of agricultural leadership and of education policy studies and practice in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
  • "Is Marriage the New Deviance?"Albertina Antognini, associate professor of law in the James E. Rogers College of Law
  • "Where Is the Love?"Bryant Valencia, higher education doctoral student
  • "There Is No Planet B"David Galbraith, professor of plant science and biomedical engineering in the School of Plant Sciences and a member of the BIO5 Institute
  • "The Aftermath of Activism: Boycott vs. Buycott"Nooshin Warren, assistant professor of marketing in the Eller College of Management
