TEDxUniversityoftheSouth includes seven nights of talks and performances followed by live Q&A with the speakers. Originally planned as a live event in March 2020, TEDxUniversityoftheSouth has moved to a virtual format this spring. The series began on Tuesday, Feb. 23, continues every Tuesday through March 30, and concludes Wednesday, April 7. All events will be at 6 p.m. via Zoom.
A TEDx event is a local program of TED-like talks organized by and shared with the community. These virtual events are intended to spark deep discussion and connections, and give the community an opportunity to ask questions and dive into the topics.
Speakers and performers include Patrick Dean (Feb. 23), Sherry Hamby (March 2), Jason Carl Rosenberg (March 9), Deborah McGrath (March 16), Bea Troxel (March 23), Karen Yu (March 30), and Mandy Moe Pwint Tu (April 7).
Next Tuesday, March 2, Sherry Hamby, research professor of psychology at the University of the South, will speak about trauma and resilience—what she has learned from her own experiences overcoming trauma as well as her more than 20 years’ experience listening to stories of resilient people.
