David Turnley: Chicago Ideas Week Presentation

October 3, 2016

Stamps Associate Professor David Turnley is a featured speaker at the October 19 Chicago Ideas Week presentation “Unlocking Genius: The Dynamics Behind the World’s Greatest Minds”.

It’s easy to think of a genius as a lone person in a room who comes up with a brilliant idea — but that’s rarely the case. We often forget about the elbow grease and collaboration that goes into creating things that we refer to as “genius.” In the same way that it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a world to create a genius. These speakers have devoted their lives to either studying the lives of geniuses or producing work that in of itself is genius. Discover how genius manifests, and how transformative minds from a diverse group of industries have unlocked the genius inside themselves.

Unlocking Genius: The Dynamics Behind the World’s Greatest Minds features Annette Gordon-Reed (Professor, Harvard Law School & Harvard University), Brian Grazer (Award-Winning Film & TV Producer; New York Times Best-selling Author), Graham Moore (Best-selling Author & Academy Award-Winning Screenwriter), and David Turnley (Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photographer).

Chicago Ideas is a movement built on one core belief: When a broad spectrum of thinkers and instigators share ideas, we have the power to transform our world.
