TEDxBellarmineU presents 'What on Earth?'

February 3, 2021

Bellarmine University will play host to a live-feed virtual TEDx conference from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 6. Speakers from the Bellarmine community and beyond will address the theme “What on Earth?”
“This question conjures notions of surprise and even horror,” says Angela Miller, Bellarmine adjunct faculty and member of the TEDxBellarmineU Core Team. “The year 2020 has been a time of such moments as we witnessed and strove for change both socially and atmospherically.”
The eight speakers will present on topics including "Community: The Power of Language," "Lessons from Earth Crises in Deep Time" and "Did the COVID-19 Pandemic Kill the Music Scene as We Know It?"
The speakers are:
  • Dr. Kate Bulinski, associate professor of Geosciences, Department of Environmental Studies
  • Israel Cuenca, founder and president of the Latin Music Awards, community leader, musician
  • Mariela Dabbah, founder & CEO, Red Shoe Movement
  • Dr. Michael LaRocco, Digital Media professor 
  • Joshua McCorkle, graduate student in Music at Bellarmine
  • Anne Pearson, junior majoring in Clinical Psychology and Political Science and minoring in Criminal Justice Studies at Bellarmine
  • Eric Satterly, chief information officer at Bellarmine
  • Angus Williams, Physical Therapist
This will be Bellarmine’s third annual TEDx event. The events are led by local volunteers working under an agreement with TED, a media organization that hosts global conferences with the slogan “ideas worth spreading.”
The event is free and available to the public. To view the presentations, visit the TEDxBellarmineU site on Saturday. You can also view the TEDx events from 2020 and 2019 at the link.
