TEDxUOregon: Curiosity & Resistance

This live webcast is scheduled for Saturday, February 9 at 9:00am.

The Center on Diversity and Community (CoDaC) is involved in hosting the UO’s first TEDx conference on campus on February 9, 2013 in the Global Scholars Hall Great Room.

TEDxUOregon brings you “Curiosity & Resistance: Diversity is Critical to Thinking.” Stemming from the diverse nature of our campus and capturing the innovative and curious nature of the Pacific Northwest, you can expect hear talks ranging from biodiversity to pioneering the way for female fighter pilots and ensuring successful education of our youth through diversity. The following speakers will be featured in this TEDx event:

  • Brendan Bohannan, UO Associate Professor in Biology
  • Tyree Harris, UO Journalism and Communications student
  • Sara Hodges, UO Associate Professor in Psychology
  • Major Caroline Jensen, United States Air Force Thunderbirds pilot
  • Ian Haney Lopez, Professor of Law, UC Berkeley
  • Andrew Nelson, UO Assistant Professor of Management
  • Carmen Urbina, Parent, Family and Diversity Coordinator, Eugene 4J School District

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxUOregon, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUOregon event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
