TEDxRochester - Ashley Aberg - 11/7/11

Ashley is in the final year of her undergraduate philosophy degree at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Her sophomore year she discovered the field of Science, Technology, and Society, in which she began studying the "problem" of the intersex. This subsequently led to an independent study in which she began the work that has led her here today. Recently she was awarded a competitive research fellowship at R.I.T. for undergraduate research and presented at an international conference on sexuality hosted in Madrid by the International Association for Studies of Sexuality, Culture, and Society. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
