Climate change, capitalism, and what’s next: Matthew Schneider-Mayerson at TEDxUMN

Matthew Schneider-Mayerson is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of American Studies at the University of Minnesota. He has published articles on American history, politics and literature in journals such as American Studies, Radical History Review, Studies in Popular Culture and The International Journal of Sport & Society. In his dissertation, “Peak Politics: Resource Scarcity and Libertarian Political Culture in the United States,” and a forthcoming article in Environmental Politics, he explores the ‘peak oil’ movement in the context of contemporary responses to environmental crises and the rise of libertarian ideals in American political culture.


The individuals involved with TEDxUMN have a passion for bringing together the great thinkers at the University of Minnesota and giving them the opportunity to share their ideas worth spreading and to discuss our shared future. We provide these great people the opportunity to share these ideas on a global stage and with an incredibly diverse audience. We believe in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately the world.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
