IAH Fellows Salon: Making the Invisible Visible, part I (Cancelled as of 8/18/2014)


Thursday, September 4, 2014

Join us for dinner and illuminating conversation. Each semester roughly a dozen of Carolina’s finest faculty are chosen to be fellows at the Institute for the Arts and Humanities (IAH), where they meet to discuss their scholarship, help each other elaborate on their ideas, and identify common themes in their research.  Five spring 2014 fellows will describe their work and show how they are attempting to “make the invisible visible” in regards to their subjects.  Following brief presentations and a reception, the fellows and program participants will enjoy guided discussions over dinner.
