MFA candidate Catherine Young invited to speak on happiness at TEDxNewHaven

Catherine Young, second-year student has been invited to be a Speaker at the inaugural TEDxNewHaven conference at the Yale University. The theme for the conference is “The Art and Science of Happiness” and Catherine will be giving four talks about the different parts of her thesis project which explores different facets of human perception.

TEDxNewHaven is designed to inspire people and make them happy. Over the course of the day, our speakers will explore “The Art and Science of Happiness” from different angles. Topics will be drawn from a diverse set of disciplines, ranging from positive psychology, entrepreneurship, education, politics, media, culture, technology and art. By combining the TED framework with the universally shared value of happiness, we hope to foster stronger connections between the residents of the greater New Haven area and the Yale community.

We are excited to listen to Catherine’s talks scheduled on April 28th from 10am to 6pm. For those unable to attend, the event will be live-streamed.

Follow Catherine’s thesis process blog.
