“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.

Headlining the final hour of the event is the Honors Program’s very own Dr. Peter Bradley. Dr. Bradley will be giving a presentation entitled “Transhumanization,” which will define transhumanization, or posthumanism, and discuss how this concept relates to and effects globalization. Below is a short bio of Dr. Bradley from Betsey Garbe’s “Faces of Ferris” article published in 2013.

“Bradley replaced Professor Emertius Maude Bigford, who founded Ferris’ Honors program in 1997. He came to Ferris from McDaniel College in Westminster, Md., where he was an associate professor of philosophy and director of the first-year seminar program in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies as well as the acting director of McDaniel’s Honors program.

Bradley earned a bachelor’s degree in 1996 from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and a doctorate in 2002 from Temple University in Philadelphia, both is philosophy. He was a post-doctorate fellow at Washington University in St. Louis before joining McDaniel in 2004.”
