Program in the Humanities

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Spotlight on Scholars Tuesdays

Spotlight on Scholars is our newest program exemplifying the diversity of scholarship at Carolina. Developed in collaboration with the General Alumni Association, these sessions will feature UNC-Chapel Hill faculty discussing their recent work—their new books or newest scholarly passion. Come find out what the University’s scholars are writing and thinking about and join in the discussion.

Spotlight on Scholars events take place on Tuesdays at Flyleaf Books, 752 MLK Jr. Blvd., in Chapel Hill. All run from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. There are no preparatory readings for Spotlight on Scholars events.
