Humanities in Action Series – with a Fall Focus on Current Events Surrounding History Education, Misinformation v. Truth, Critical Race Theory, & More!

Join our umbrella organization, Carolina Public Humanities, for a fall series focused on the currently politicized topics of history education, misinformation v. truth, facts about Critical Race Theory, and more. While these lectures are designed for the general public, and do not include the pedagogical component that Carolina K-12 events contain, these lectures may still contain information of interest to K-12 educators.

Currently practicing K-12 teachers, as well as pre-service teachers enrolled in an education program, can REGISTER HERE for FREE virtual attendance.  (General public participants must register via the public registration site, as these are fee-based for anyone not classified as a pre-service or K-12 teacher.)

Programs in this series include:

  • Our Misperceptions of Misinformation and Public Understanding of Science | Sept. 29
  • Seeking Truth in an Age of Distortion: Navigating America’s “Epistemological Crisis” | Oct. 6
  • Social Media and Democracy | Oct. 13
  • Critical Race Theory and the Law | Oct. 20
  • Teaching “Hard History” in K-12 Education: From Politicization to Reconciliation (featuring Christie Norris, Director of Carolina K-12) | Oct. 27

Register for each program HERE.
