*Canceled* The Uhlman Family Distinguished Scholar Program

April 16, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:15 pm


In collaboration with the Center for Jewish Studies and the Center for European Studies

The Uhlman Family Distinguished Scholar Program for 2020 will feature Christopher Browning, Frank Porter Graham Professor Emeritus at UNC-Chapel Hill. This special event, co-sponsored by the Center for Jewish Studies, will feature historical perspectives from a leading global expert on Nazi Germany, the Holocaust, and the demise of democracy in Europe during the 1930s.

The program begins Thursday with a public reception at 6:00 pm and a public talk at 7:00 pm, focusing on responses to Professor Browning’s classic book, Ordinary Men, and his recent work on Holocaust perpetrators. Professor Browning’s presentation on Friday will examine similarities and differences that appear in the democratic crises of the 1930s and the present historical era. It will be followed by a panel discussion with UNC-Chapel Hill faculty and graduate students. Generous private support makes it possible for this program to be free and open to the public.
