“Beyond: Globalization” at Ferris State University will be holding their annual MINDS Aflame event on September 29th from 5:30pm till 8:30pm in the Williams Auditorium. This event is similar to a TED Talk and it will include 9 presenters who speak for about 12 minutes each. This speaker series is a great way for students to finish their Cultural Event requirement as each hour of this event counts as one Cultural Event.

Over the next few weeks leading up to the event, the Honors blog will have features on each speaker to inform students about the individual presenters and their topics.  Below are the list of speakers and their respective topics:

First Hour

Dr. Olukemi Fadayomi – “What is globalization?”

Enefe Adaji & Wayne Bersano – “Ubuntu”

Dr. Paul Blake – “Impact of Globalization at Ferris”

Second Hour
