Let There Be Light

Christian Brady,

Originally posted on December 17, 2012

Dr. Christian M. M. Brady, Dean of the Schreyer Honors College, served as host for TEDxPSU. He came to Penn State in August 2006, from Tulane University, where he directed the honors program and previously directed the university's Jewish studies program. Brady holds two advanced degrees from the University of Oxford — a graduate diploma in Jewish studies, and a doctorate in Oriental studies with a concentration in ancient Hebrew and Jewish literature. His baccalaureate degree, in Near Eastern studies and history, is from Cornell University.
Brady possesses a unique blend of dynamic teaching, focused academic research, and broad administrative experience. Upon looking into Brady's office, one can immediately see his many academic interests, as demonstrated by bookshelves full of much-loved books, with vintage Macintosh computers used as bookends.
While he continues to publish in the field of biblical studies, he is also an affiliate faculty member in Penn State's College of Information Sciences and Technology and leverages new technologies for engaging students and extending the learning space.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
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.)


A huge thank you to our partners who make all of this possible!
