TEDx Gallatin Senior Symposium

Dear Gallatin Community,

Just as this year’s graduating class is finishing with their colloquia, we are gearing up to continue a more recent Gallatin tradition with the 3rd Annual Gallatin Senior Symposium. Inspired by the annual TEDtalks*, the TEDx Gallatin Senior Symposium showcases a select group of seniors who will take us through some of the issues that they have encountered as they’ve built their concentrations. From the informal economies of the Mumbai slums to the state infrastructure of Ancient Greece, from the somatic impact of language to the political currency of Lady Gaga (meat dress and all), we are incredibly excited for this year’s program, which we believe not only celebrates the participating students’ work but also the sheer diversity of Gallatin’s undergraduate scholars.

This year’s Senior Symposium will take place on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 at 7.00pm in The Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts with a reception to follow. This year’s participants include:
  • Batul Abbas
  • Zach Caceres
  • Courtney Cauthen
  • Laura Esposito
  • Stephanie Fisher
  • Reva Frankel
  • Sarah Lefkowith
  • Christopher Nolan
  • Allison Trevorrow
  • Sarah Zapiler
Please join us if you can for a celebration of the interdisciplinarity and individuality of Gallatin and its students. We hope to see you there!

*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 call TEDxGallatin Senior Symposium, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDx Gallatin Senior Symposium  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.
