Resilience and the Sustainability of Buzzwords

Resilience and the Sustainability of Buzzwords This video was recorded live on March 23rd, 2012 and is part of the Future Tense event, "Defining Resilience." In it, Jesse Sheidlower discusses the resilience of buzzwords. The ability to bounce back, to absorb shocks, to persevere, to retain functionality over time, to endure, to adapt, to succeed, to survive, to sustain... so many verbs are conjured up by the term "resilience." Whether we're talking about our bodies, our minds, our communities, our institutions or our natural environment, the R-word provides a conceptual framework for designing a better tomorrow. Please join us for a wide-ranging inquiry on what it means to be resilient and what a resilient future could look like.
