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.
Join us for a night of technology, entertainment, and design, as we hear from seven speakers from the UA community:
- "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
