Humanities Salon Conversations
People have gathered since the 17th century for salon-style conversations on literature, history, politics, and the arts. A thoughtful, welcoming “salonnière” guides the discussion, and the participants offer their diverse perspectives on the issues that the salon explores. Building on this vital humanistic tradition, Carolina Public Humanities is offering a new Zoom series of small-group “Salon Conversations” about provocative newspaper and magazine articles. The conversations will often focus on short articles that UNC faculty have recently written on important public issues, and each salon will provide humanities-oriented analysis of important public issues. The series will evolve as current issues and debates evolve throughout the fall of 2020.
