St Mary’s University is delighted to announce TEDxStMarysUniversity an afternoon and evening of enlightening and exciting 18-minute talks. As well as questions around whether the traditional university is dead, we’ll be discussing the ethics of vaccine passports, climate change and whether psychoanalysis can teach us about on-line misogyny. If you have an interest in the conversation between science and theology or want to hear about the Beatles, Jay Z and Dangermouse, this is the event for you.
