Time is usually thought of as progressing in a linear fashion. But it is more complicated than that, because every moment is dependent on what came before and every moment after is influenced by the present. You can’t separate moments in time – they exist together, all at once, influencing one another, for good or bad.
For this year’s TEDxNSU event, speakers are invited to share their unique perspective of time. Whether you reflect on historical or personal insights, we are looking for speakers who have thought about how time has influenced their and other people’s time on earth. All members of the NSU community —students, faculty, staff, and alumni—are welcome to apply for this opportunity.
Hosted by NSU’s College of Psychology and modeled after the TED Talks, TEDxNSU is an annual, public event featuring engaging lectures, videos, visual art, and interactive experiences. This is the fifth year TEDxNSU has been hosted on our campus, under the leadership of faculty members Leanne Boucher, Ph.D., and W. Matthew Collins, Ph.D.
