Speakers Announced For TEDx Event

This year TEDxFulbrightDublin asks Ireland: What is its notion of a nation? On Sunday September 9th, ten speakers will take to the Tivoli Theatre stage in the heart of Dublin’s Liberties to explore their ideas worth sharing.

TEDxFulbrightDublin 2018 will address a diverse range of topics including Irish culture, justice, consent, direct provision, environmental sustainability and wellbeing.

Amongst the speaker line-up is Dr Emilie Pine, author of the Irish bestseller Notes to Self recently published by Tramp Press. Dr Pine, currently Associate Professor in Drama at UCD, undertook research at UC Berkeley through a Fulbright Award in 2010. Her TEDxFulbrightDublin talk will explore the influence and impact that institutions can have globally.

Other notable speakers include psychologist Dr Finian Fallon, who will be making the case for the need for empathy in our working lives, and DIT Law Lecturer Dr Brian Barry, who will reveal to us the average day for an Irish judge.
