Wesleyan Thinks BIG is a TED-talk style event where Wesleyan’s beloved professors and administrators are asked to speak for about 10 minutes on an experience, a personal passion, an existential question, etc. It’s a way to bring the community together outside of the classroom and think BIG!

  • Iris Bork-GoldField (GRST): “Thank you for Smoking. The Unintended Consequences of Lucky Strikes”
  • Danielle Vogel (ENGL): “Narrative & Nest”
