Semester 1, 2022

Hello Researcher! 

We are honored to invite you to speak at our Ted Talks event this Fall, 2022: Counter-Narratives: Debunking the Single Story!  


Ted Talks is an event being curated by Humanities. Our goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused and on a wide range of subjects related to single stories and stereotypes in our society. We hope to foster learning, inspiration, and wonder-and provoke conversations that matter.


It is critical, perhaps now more than ever, to bring counter-narratives to light that diminish harmful single stories and stereotypes in our world. This is why we are calling on you to hone in on a single story that you are passionate about and create an engaging, original, and well-researched talk that can counter the single story in our community. 


We are huge fans of your work: from your fantastic TED analysis to your critical perspectives, claim writing skills, and impressive research. You would be an excellent candidate for our conference and believe you have powerful stories and perspectives to share, that would really make a difference in our society. 


Your talk would be filmed and incorporate a visual component. It could be up to 7 minutes in length on a single story of your choice. Check out our speaker guide here! 

Ted Talks is tentatively scheduled for December 2022. We believe your voice would be a critical addition to the event. Please have your topic submitted to your Ted Talk Organizer(Teacher) by Wednesday, August 31st.  

We are looking forward to partnering with you in debunking single stories and to your participation in this momentous event!
