Tuesdays with TED
The Consequences of Inequality
Oct 11 • 12-1 pm
In-person at Trailside
Oct 25 • 12-1 pm
Online via Zoom/Dial-in
The nonprofit TED, standing for Technology, Entertainment, Design, offers knowledge and inspiration from the world’s foremost thinkers under the moniker “ideas worth spreading” free online. These talks give access to the world’s most inspiring voices, discussing a vast range of themes. Join educator Mike Trebilcock on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month during lunch to watch a TED talk (typically 10-20 minutes each) and participate in lively discussion about the ideas presented.
A new understanding of human history and the roots of inequality
What if the commonly accepted narratives about the foundation of civilization are all wrong? Archaeologist David Wengrow challenges traditional thinking about the social evolution of humanity and explains how rethinking history can radically change our perspective on inequality and modern life.
The psychology of inequality and political division
Showing how economic inequality changes the way people see and behave towards one another, psychologist Keith Payne helps explain the rise of the political polarization that’s slicing up society — and challenges us to think twice the next time we dismiss someone for the sake of politics.
The link between inequality and anxiety
Why are global levels of anxiety and depression so high? Social epidemiologist Richard Wilkinson presents compelling data on the impact of inequality on mental health and social relationships in countries around the world. “Inequality,” he says, “is the enemy between us.”
How to heal a divided world
How do we define worth in society, and who gets status? Sociologist Michele Lamont studies these questions and investigates ways to broaden the circle of recognition and fight the harm of social stigmatization. She lays out the steps needed to make more inclusive societies — and it all starts by expanding our idea of who matters.
