On Saturday, May 4, 2019 philosophy doctoral candidate Julio Covarrubias gave a talk on "Setting the Record Straight: The Latin American Mind in Global Context" at TEDxUofW 2018-2019. Julio's research focuses on Latinx identity and racial oppression. Currently, he is writing a dissertation on the ethics and politics of inter- and intra-personal relationships in the wake of colonial violence.
The event took place in Kane Hall, Walker Ames Room from 9:30am-3:30pm. The event was sold out, but was broadcast via live stream and recorded -- you can now view Julio's presentation online.
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events "in the spirit of ideas worth spreading," modeled after, and guided by, the annual TED Conference. The student-run TEDxUofW was established in 2012 and provides an annual gathering of "great creative thinkers, scientific minds, community leaders, and much more."
Great job, Julio!
