TEDxNavesink NJ – Makers 2016

Reserve your tickets for:


April 8, 2017 at Monmouth University

Can you identify with your identity? It’s all the rage these days. The usage of the word identity in books has increased seven-fold in the post-war era, Google says. The New York Times said 2015 was “The Year We Obsessed Over Identity” and dictionary.com declared it the “word of the year.” Next year, we’ll explore every aspect of identity. No ID required.
