North Carolina: Then & Now
September 27 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
In Collaboration with Sandhills Community College in Pinehurst, NC
This seminar will feature two scholars examining our great state, with a look to the past and a look to the future. Please join us for North Carolina: Then & Now.
North Carolina: Then Adjunct Assistant Professor of History at UNC- CH, Rachel F. Seidman will present “Making a Home in North Carolina: Stories of Migration and Change.” In this talk, Professor Seidman explores how oral history can help us understand the demographic trends here, in the Southern Pines area, and all across our state. Highlighting interviews about changing communities over time and the people who sought to make a life in them, this talk will explore the richness of the Southern Oral History Program’s collection, and how listening to people’s stories can bring new insight into past and present challenges.
North Carolina: Now Next, Rebecca Tippett, the Director of Carolina Demography at the Carolina Population Center at UNC-Chapel Hill, will discuss Urbanization & Migration in North Carolina. Her lecture explores the urbanizing nature of NC and the importance of migration in driving population trends. It provides a close up look of how these trends vary across some of the state’s counties and highlights some of what we might expect in the near (to distant) future.
The tuition is $25. Lunch is included.
