This year’s theme, “Lost and Found”, is about the perpetual discovery and rediscovery that is essential to our existence as human beings. It questions what it means to feel lost and find purpose once again, be it in the formation of ourselves or the creation of our communities. It calls us to remember people, places, words, and histories we have left behind or taken for granted, but simultaneously invites us to reclaim, reshape, and reconstruct what we know. It makes space for both grief and joy, fate and intention, exile and belonging, context and abstraction. Most of all, it asks that we rethink our narratives of time and progress as we navigate our individual and collective past, present, and future.

This year’s speakers are from all across the country. We will have a Midd alum, a linguistics professor, outreach director of Southern Poverty Law Center, a VT designer, a state representative from Kentucky, and of course our own student speaker.

We are also still looking for volunteers to help out with the event. If you’re interested in meeting speakers, assisting in filming, or overall just helping make an awesome event happen, email nfauzi@middlebury.edu or ccousineau@middlebury.edu !

 


What is TEDx?

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 called TEDxMiddlebury, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxMiddlebury 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. For more information, click here
