Next Big Question 2011: Who Are You?

Watch above as Chaviva Hosek, CIFAR President and CEO, joins the presenters to introduce the event.

Who Are You?
You Are Your Citizenship
Who Are You?
You Are What Your Genes Experience
Who Are You?
You Are The Groups You Belong To
How do you think most people would answer the question “Who am I”? Why is your approach to identity not more influential? How much freedom do people have to choose the groups they belong to?
How has your research affected your understanding of your own identity? Is there one thing in your research area that you would like to have an answer for? Technology allows people to live with less social interaction. What are the effects of this reality?

Click on the photos above to see the presenters explain their perspectives on the nature of identity and respond to some of your questions. For more answers to your questions click on the list on the right.
